CJ 4DPLEX, the world’s leading 4D cinema company, announced that a new 4DX auditorium will open with Majid Al Futtaim Cinemas – VOX Cinemas, the Middle East’s most innovative and customer-focused theatre exhibitor. This will bring the immersive cinema experience to Qatar for the first time, making it the 48th country worldwide and the seventh in the Middle East to bring 4DX to moviegoers.
The new 4DX screen – which will be located at the new VOX Cinemas Doha Festival City, located in Um Salal Muhammad – is the result of a long-standing partnership with VOX Cinemas. It follows the recent opening of a 4DX screen at VOX Cinemas Egypt this past March, and earlier openings throughout the Middle East including in the UAE, Oman, and Lebanon. VOX Cinemas first partnered with CJ 4DPLEX to bring a 4DX-enabled theatre to Dubai in December 2013 (VOX Cinemas City Centre Deira and City Centre Mirdif) and, with today’s news, the total number of VOX Cinemas to feature 4DX will be 12 theatres across five countries.
VOX Cinemas Doha Festival City, located in the new Doha Festival City shopping mall, will be the first and flagship cinema for the exhibitor in Qatar. The new location will operate 18 screens and introduce new concepts to the region such as VOX MAX, Kids, 4DX, and THEATRE by Rhodes. Overall, VOX Cinemas currently operates 284 screens at 29 locations in six countries throughout the Middle East including the UAE, Oman, Lebanon, Bahrain, Egypt, and Qatar.
