This pilot phase will, if successful, be followed by a complete digitization of all KNCC's screens all over Kuwait and upcoming Cinemas in Gulf States, i.e. Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Qatar.

The advanced feature set and the future-proof design of the Qube technology, the end-to-end suite of solutions on offer and Qube’s established international presence makes Qube Cinema, Inc. the ideal partner that will help KNCC achieve their ambitious goals. Qube Cinema’s domain knowledge and excellent training and service support is also a key factor in this move.
