Muvi U-Walk Cinema completed in Riyadh

The Chapman Taylor-designed Muvi U-Walk cinema opened to the public in Riyadh in early March.

The dedicated cinema building, located on Prince Turki Alawwal Road, is home to two formats which are new to Saudi Arabia - Dolby Cinema and Samsung Onyx. The new venue will host a ScreenX theatre, Muvi suites and regular cinema screens

The cinema complex is capable of accommodating 1,400 people across its 13 screens, which will show a mix of regional, Hollywood and Bollywood films to moviegoers.

Chapman Taylor designed and delivered this state-of-the art cinema on behalf of Muvi Cinemas, which is the first Saudi-owned cinema chain.

The cinema, along with all others in the kingdom, will be closed for the duration of the government’s measures to combat the spread of COVID-19.
