We are proud to be part of the expansion in moviegoing experiences, in new and promising markets.” 

Sultan Alhokair, Chairman and Founder of Muvi Cinemas added “Muvi Cinemas is committed to delivering a world class experience to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.” 

Muvi Cinemas will incorporate a variety of Cinionic solutions into its multiplexes, VIP Cinemas and Premium Large Format auditoriums. These include Barco’s High Contrast Smart Lasers, Flagship Lasers and the recently announced Barco Series 4, which delivers the highest quality visual experience in cinema for moviegoers today, future proofed for tomorrow. The Barco Series 4 leverages 4K, RGB-Laser, as well as being ready for 4K 120fps high frame rate, high dynamic-range (HDR) and onboard Barco Colorgenic™ delivering wide-color-gamut capabilities.
