Luxury cinema opens at Qatar’s Lagoona Mall
A new four-screen cinema opened its doors to the public at Lagoona Mall over the weekend.
The launch marks the entrance of the Flik Cinema chain into Qatar.
The theater was originally supposed to open last fall, and it is unclear why this was postponed.
At the time, Flik Cinemas described the Lagoona location as “the first platinum and gold class theater multiplex in the GCC.”
The seats have leather recliners with small tables, similar to the “seven-star” experience offered at one of the theaters inside Novo Cinemas on the Pearl-Qatar.
Movie goers in platinum class can order snacks and drinks via a personal iPad and have them delivered to their seats.
Flik is also planning to open movie theaters in two other Qatar malls within the next year.
Both are Al Mana Group projects, and the cinema chain is also part of the same group.
One Flik theater will be located at Al Mirqab Mall off of Nasser St., while the other will be in Doha Mall in Abu Hamour.
Both will have eight screens but willseat 1,000 and 1,400 movie-goers, respectively. All will show a combination of Hollywood, Bollywood and Arabic-language films.
The malls are expected to open sometime this year, adding even more shopping and viewing options to the Qatar market.
Meanwhile, at least seven other malls are expected to open in the country within the next few years.
Have you tried out the new cinema yet? Thoughts?
