The 18-screen Muvi Cinema at Mall of Dhahran is the largest cinema in Saudi Arabia. The complex offers a range of cinema formats to choose between, including ScreenX, ONYX, Dolby Cinema, Muvi Suites and standard theatres.

An urban edge

The design for the innovative cinema complex has a theme of urban downtown, with the intention of creating a dynamic, modern and memorable cinema experience.

Industrial, yet luxurious

Internal spaces are characterised by an industrial, yet luxurious, material palette, including timber, exposed steelwork, exposed brickwork and an exposed concrete floor. The Muvi Suites area is designed for a sense of exclusivity, with marble floors, bespoke wool carpets, timber panelling and custom-made works of art.

Chapman Taylor has been engaged to design and deliver a series of more than 20 state-of-the art cinemas for their Muvi Cinemas brand, the first Saudi-owned cinema chain.
