The Light Cinemas, in partnership with The Big Picture Cinema Consultancy, has been awarded an operating license in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The company has unveiled the new cinema brand in the Kingdom, Muvi, which has fifteen sites already at a combination of design, planning and consultancy stages.

Teaming up with Saudi fashion retail giants, Fawaz Alkohair Group, The Light Cinemas, known as The Light, and The Big Picture are integrating Muvi cinemas into the FAHG’s Arabian Centres Malls in locations across the region, including Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam. Muvi will provide its audiences with a range of options for a night out, from Luxury VIP packages with fine dining, to children’s screens complete with in-screen play areas, to Screen X immersive wraparound viewing.

Majed Bahaffi of FAHG said, “We have made history with The Light Cinemas by launching Saudi Arabia’s first home grown brand, Muvi cinemas, and we look forward to many fruitful years ahead working with The Light Cinemas team.”

The Light was founded by business partners John Sullivan and Keith Pullinger.
