Topics will include the future of the rapidly growing Saudi cinema industry, the latest technology, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the sector and key cinema construction mistakes to avoid.

Anthony will talk about Chapman Taylor’s work with Muvi Cinemas, designing and rolling out the first ever Saudi-owned cinema brand’s venues across the country, with 10 completed to date (including the country’s largest cinema complex at Mall of Dhahran) and another 10 due to complete in the coming months. Chapman Taylor was engaged by Fawaz Al Hokair Group in 2019 to design and deliver these state-of-the art cinemas.
