“This mighty combination of a revolutionary screen and legendary sound will truly elevate the content and we are excited for Saudi cinephiles to experience this epic offering. With Samsung’s ground-breaking Onyx Cinema LED screen technology and Harman’s iconic JBL audio, movie goers in Saudi Arabia will immensely enjoy their experience at the theatre and witness a huge leap in entertainment quality.”

“Samsung is the only brand offering an end-to-end movie experience, from stunning visuals through Onyx Cinema LED screens to phenomenal sound from JBL Professional by Harman,” said Y.J. Kim, president of Samsung Electronics in Saudi Arabia. “Onyx Cinema LED screens at Muvi Cinemas in Saudi Arabia will revolutionize cinema viewing experience for film lovers across the Kingdom. This is a remarkable milestone for Saudi cinemas and a testament to our consumer-centric approach.”

Samsung’s Onyx LED Cinema screens have been installed across the world, through partnerships with Swagath Theatre in Bangalore, Pacific Theatres in the United States, Arena Cinemas’ Sihlcity theatre in Switzerland and now with Muvi Cinemas in Saudi Arabia.

The screen offers powerful visuals with greater attention to detail. It is capable of delivering true colors with high dynamic range support with greater vibrancy and accuracy along with sharp contrast, higher levels of brightness and great viewing angles that offer correct picture ratios (not distorted as is the case with projection screens) and are unaffected by ambient light; eliminating optical distortion and interference.

The sound system at Muvi Cinemas features Onyx Sound, an innovative audio solution that incorporates industry leading products from the Harman family of brands including Crown amplifiers, BSS signal processing, and JBL Professional’s loudspeakers and exclusive Sculpted Surround technology.

Muvi Cinemas, the first nationally owned and operated cinema in Saudi Arabia, opened its doors in August 2019 at the Mall of Arabia in Jeddah. This Saudi cinema is operated by Next Generation Company and is filled with outstanding Saudi talents.

The first Muvi Cinemas in Jeddah accommodates 1,950 guests in 15 screens and offers 21 seats for audiences with special needs.
