Novo Cinemas
With a rich legacy of cinema firsts, a passion for movies and a mission to entertain film fans everywhere, Novo Cinemas is proud to be the most expansive chain of theatres in the Middle East.

Our journey began in the year 2000 with the launch of our flagship cinema in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, which would be the cornerstone of an entertainment chain that would soon extend across borders and introduce to the region such pioneering technologies as online booking, e-kiosks and the first cinema-dedicated mobile app, the UAE’s first IMAX screen, in addition to the luxurious and revolutionary 7STAR concept of film exhibition.
In 2012, we joined ELAN Group as part of the Gulf Film Group, creating a regional powerhouse in entertainment that provides the latest in film innovation and set worldwide standards in the area and beyond.
Attuned to the evolving social habits and needs of today’s movie-goers, in 2014 we re-inaugurated the chain as Novo Cinemas, an identity that would reflect our promise of a complete entertainment experience.
In the same year, we opened our doors at World Trade Centre-Abu Dhabi, a location near and dear to Emirati hearts in the capital’s old central market, and took premium cinema to Qatar, welcoming movie-goers at the luxury island destination of The Pearl-Qatar. The year 2015 saw us opening Bahrain’s one and only IMAX theater at our cinemas in Seef Mall- Muharraq.
As a result, our expansive network now spans no fewer than 115 screens and 23,000 seats in 15 locations across the UAE, Qatar and Bahrain. Ongoing expansion will see our numbers grow to over 200 screens by 2016 – and our IMAX network extended to 6 spectacular screens.
We embrace traditional values of personal, friendly, and hospitable service, while leading the charge into the modern era of cinema.
