Cinemacity IMAX, a project by Sharjah Cinema Company, a joint venture between Xclusive Cinema Holding of Lebanon and Alef Group, will launch its new multiplex at Sharjah’s new Zero6 mall on Tuesday.

The IMAX theatre at Zero 6 will feature the UAE’s biggest IMAX screen to date, along with an exclusive VIP lounge for IMAX ticket holders.

Inside, guests have the option of enjoying three different classes of seating - Deluxe Class, Club Class seats with semi reclining chairs as well as extra legroom, and the luxurious full reclining VIP Star Class seats that come with in-theatre service.

“We believe we have found the right partner to ensure that our shared expertise in delivering outstanding customer experiences will be perfectly translated into one of our most ambitious projects yet – at Zero 6,” said Sheikh Khalid Sultan Al Qasimi, chairman, Alef Group.

The IMAX theatre is set to premiere with the release of Warner Bros Pictures’ Rampage.

In addition to the IMAX theatre, Cinemacity will also feature two VIP theatres with dine-in service and an exclusive access to the Star lounge, and five large screen theatres.

Hammad Atassi, CEO of Xclusive Cinemas, said: "We have always strived to provide our guests with an unmatched quality of cinema experience; consistently setting new standards through our luxurious and state-of-the-art cinemas across the Middle East. By partnering with IMAX at our newest location, we are proud to provide the Northern Emirates and Sharjah with their first IMAX theatre, and a cinema-going experience unlike any other in the region.”

Xclusive Cinemas SAL Holding said it will operate 116 screens by the end of 2018 in five countries including Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, the UAE, and soon, in Saudi Arabia.
