CanalOlympia is the leading network of cinema and live performance venues in Africa. Several dozen venues are set to open in central and western African countries, where entertainment and cultural infrastructures are often lacking, appealing to a population with an increasing appetite for cultural content. Nine venues have been opened to date (June 2018) in Conakry (Guinea), Yaoundé and Douala (Cameroon), Niamey (Niger), Dakar (Senegal), Lomé (Togo), Cotonou (Benin) and two in Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso). The venues are structured around a modular movie theater with 300 seats, which can be transformed into an open-air stage with space for an audience of several thousands. The venues are fitted with the latest projection and sound technologies and use energy provided by solar panels. CanalOlympia is part of the Vivendi group.
