The latest news coming out of Saudi Arabia reaffirms its focus on building a flourishing cinema and entertainment scene, as Cinépolis announced this week plans to open 200 cinemas by the year 2023.
Cinépolis is a Mexican movie theater chain, the biggest cineplex chain in its country of origin with 427 theaters in 97 cities, the largest chain in Latin America, and the fourth largest in the world. Cinépolis already has a couple of cinemas in Saudi Arabia, in the Red Sea port city of Jeddah and capital of the eastern province, Dammam. Now, in line with Saudi Arabia’s larger Vision 2030 goals, the chain will provide the Kingdom with 200 brand-new cinemas and enrich the entertainment offerings the country has to offer, while also creating many new job opportunities.
