Novo Cinemas

Novo Cinemas is home to the most innovative entertainment experiences in the Middle East, offering each visitor A Great Time Out since 2014. We are one of the largest cinema chains in the Middle East because we push boundaries, pioneer change, and consistently strive for the new. We began our legacy by introducing the region to such evolutionary technologies as the largest IMAX with Laser in the MENA region, online booking, e-kiosks and the first cinema-dedicated mobile app.

Our theaters are cinematic experience hubs creating lasting memories for every customer. Novo brings movies to life, letting guests choose from 2D, 3D, MX4D, IMAX with Laser, Dolby Atmos, luxury 7-Star VIP and Majlis suites for their comfort. The latest offering, Novo KIDZ, introduces a playful theatre experience for young children to celebrate birthdays in a vibrant setting.

Supporting the in-theatre entertainment are bespoke gourmet menus, the latest trends in cinema snacks including frozen popcorn, fresh crepes and healthy treats, as well as all-time favorite drinks. We are committed to providing every community with a personalized and outstanding entertainment experience placing cinema-goers at the forefront.

Known as a destination for regional premieres, we are proud to host the most anticipated preview screenings. In addition to blockbuster releases, Novo offers corporate and private group bookings as well as alternative content such as live boxing, cricket and football matches and the performing arts. Films can be as informative as they are entertaining and Novo’s commitment to education is reflected in our wide range of stunning IMAX documentary films available for private school bookings.

Novo Cinemas takes pride in showcasing the latest viewing technology, being acknowledged as the regional leader in cinema innovation when bestowed with the Best Middle East Cinema Theatre Franchise 2019 from Middle East Markets for the second year running and Best Cinema Chain 2019 – Middle East by CV Magazine Corporate Excellence Award. These awards are a testament to our dedication to providing customers with state-of-the-art movie-going experiences.

Novo currently operates 178 screens across the GCC, with ongoing expansion.
