Al Tayer Group and Cinépolis, the largest cinema exhibitor in Latin America and fourth largest cinema exhibitor in the world, have created a joint venture headquartered in Dubai to build and operate cinemas across the GCC region.

This venture will introduce Cinépolis' world-class cinema-going experience - high-touch theatre concepts, including Luxury, Premium, Macro XE, 4D Emotion technology and kid-approved Cinépolis Junior auditoriums - to Gulf audiences for the first time starting in early 2019.

Over the next five years the venture will expand in the UAE, Oman and Bahrain, where it plans to become a leading player in the movie theatres industry and bring the best movie-going experience to customers.

In Saudi Arabia, Al Tayer Group and Cinépolis have partnered with Al Hokair Group, a leading hospitality and entertainment operator in the MENA region, to set up movie theatres in 15 major cities across the country.
