The developer of the IMG Worlds of Adventure, the world’s largest temperature-controlled indoor themed entertainment destination which is being built in Dubai, has said it is close to signing a deal for a multiplex cinema.

The 12-screen cinema will be part of the 1.5 million sq ft development, which is scheduled to be completed later this year.

IMG Worlds of Adventure said in a statement that it is currently in advanced discussions with a potential operating partner for the cinema, which it expects to announce in the near future.

The cinema will be accessible to those within the park, as well as having a separate access point for those who only want to watch a movie, the company said.

Lennard Otto, general manager, IMG Worlds of Adventure, said: “IMG Worlds of Adventure is entering a phase of real momentum with construction ongoing and the finalisation of a number of commercial agreements.

"Building a destination of this scale creates a great deal of expectation among our stakeholders, and we are working tirelessly on creating an experience that will really blow our visitors away.

“This will be evident through what promises to be a world class food and beverage offering which puts health and wellbeing at its heart. In addition to this, when we open, our rides, retail, entertainment, and corporate proposition will make IMG Worlds of Adventure a true landmark destination for all.”

Set to welcome more than 20,000 visitors per day, IMG Worlds of Adventure will boast 28 food and beverage offerings.

The themed destination will house a total of 20 retail outlets, each one themed to one of the four zones – Cartoon Network, Marvel, IMG Boulevard, and the Lost Valley – Dinosaur Adventure.

IMG Worlds of Adventure, which is owned by the Ilyas & Mustafa Galadari Group, will be situated within City of Arabia, along Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road in Dubai.
