Novo's first location in Bahrain redefines the future of cinema-going in the region. Residents can now experience a new standard in cinema viewing with the launch of the country's first IMAX and only 7-STAR theatre.  

 

Novo Cinemas, a subsidiary of ELAN, launched its flagship Bahrain location at Seef Mall Muharraq on Thursday, July 30th, 2015, promising a complete entertainment experience with cutting-edge cinema technology and premium facilities.

Located only ten minutes from the city centre on Muharraq Island (near Arad Fort), Novo Cinemas at Seef Mall Muharraq features 14 screens and a capacity of over 1300 seats. The state-of-the-art multiplex also boasts Bahrain’s first IMAX theatre, the world’s most immersive big-screen experience with patented image and sound technology, and theatre geometry. What’s more, film fans across Bahrain and the neighbouring Kingdom of Saudi Arabia can indulge in the luxurious NOVO 7-STAR theatre experience, another first, featuring reclining leather seats, individual iPads for easy ordering, as well as a dedicated chef and butler service. In addition to an enviable line-up of movie releases, Novo Cinemas will be host to a packed calendar of fun activities, and serve as Bahrain’s new entertainment venue for private and corporate screenings and events.
