Muvi Cinemas – Saudi Arabia’s first home-grown cinema brand, has opened the first Dolby Cinema screen in KSA, located at the U-Walk Boulevard, Arabian Centres in Riyadh
Dolby Cinema™ is a premium cinema created by Dolby Laboratories that combines Dolby proprietary technologies such as Dolby Vision™ and Dolby Atmos®, as well as other signature entrance and intrinsic design features, designed to make every visit a completely captivating cinematic event.
Dolby Vision™ brings the story alive with amazing brightness and darker darks to offer a more lifelike sense of depth, rendering colors and detail unlike other movie screens, and Dolby Atmos® transports audiences into the movie with breathtakingly realistic, moving audio that fills the room, while the clarity and precision creates a stunning, textured soundscape that adds layers of depth to each scene.
Films to be screened at the Dolby Cinema in U-Walk include Arabic drama/comedy Shams Al Maarif, English films My Spy and animation Trolls World Tour and Arabic comedy Al Ghasala.
There are a total of 251 Dolby Cinemas globally, with an additional 200 Dolby Cinema screens committed, and more than 300 movie titles being released or announced in Dolby Vision™ and Dolby Atmos®.
Speaking on the opening of the Dolby Cinema at U-Walk, Sultan Alhokair, CEO of Muvi Cinemas, said: “We are very excited to be opening Dolby Cinema and bringing the most powerful image and sound technology to Saudi Arabia. Dolby Cinema will provide a different experience for Saudi cinemagoers and will be the first of three screens to be added to our extensive portfolio of offerings.”
