Vox Cinemas opens an eight-screen multiplex at The Esplanade, Riyadh

Step inside this integrated, state-of-the-art family entertainment destination…

In yet another milestone to develop the movie-going experience in Saudi Arabia, Vox Cinemas opens its ninth integrated movie theatre at Riyadh’s latest premier destination, The Esplanade.


On the cards? Eight-screen multiplex featuring four standard screens, two Gold auditoriums, a Kids’ theatre and a Max auditorium for a variety of high-end cinematic experiences.

Situated at Riyadh’s must-visit shopping and luxury lifestyle destination, Vox Cinemas The Esplanade is an integrated family entertainment destination with concepts including Yalla! Bowling and a selection of games, including billiard tables and air hockey.

Guests can also enjoy a menu of classic cinema fare, hot foods, desserts, and thirst-quenching beverages.

The new cinema will offer moviegoers the same unmatched, signature experience they have come to expect and enjoy from Vox Cinemas elsewhere.


Since opening the first multiplex in Riyadh in 2018, Vox Cinemas has rapidly expanded to nine locations in the capital within just three years. The launch of Vox Cinemas The Esplanade marks Vox Cinemas’ third opening with long-term partners Unified Real Estate Development Company, the largest and fastest-growing shopping centre developer in Saudi Arabia.


Commenting on the opening, Mohamed Al Hashemi, KSA country head of Majid Al Futtaim leisure, entertainment, cinemas and lifestyle, said, “This latest offering is the perfect location to reach a wider audience of movie lovers and anyone else seeking a memorable experience. We are committed to continuously investing in our expansion in the Kingdom, especially with the growing demand for world-class, immersive cinematic experiences. We look forward to welcoming people across the community and creating even more great moments with our guests.”


Prince Bandar bin Khalid F. Al Saud, president of Unified Real Estate Development Company, added, “Riyadh continues to grow and evolve as a compelling entertainment option in the region, and we are pleased to be a part of this development alongside Majid Al Futtaim. The VOX Cinemas location at The Esplanade promises a wide variety of entertainment experiences to complement the on-screen action, making it an ideal fit for the discerning visitors of The Esplanade.”

In April, Vox Cinemas opened the first-ever multiplex in H’ail in collaboration with Unified Real Estate Development Company. They also have a location together at Town Square in Jeddah.

Vox Cinemas now has a total of 149 screens across 14 movie theatres in five cities, making it the largest exhibitor by screen count, admissions and market share, and the largest independent distributor in the Kingdom.

In addition, Vox Cinemas has just opened a state-of-the-art multiplex at The Spot – Sheikh Jaber in Riyadh and will open a new location in Jubail later this year.
