Around 10 screens here, several upstairs with their own snack bars. We were in 'Platinum 9' hall. Large, comfortable seats with wide armrests. Air conditioning at a sensible level. Cleaning staff in the moment the film finished. They started playing the wrong film, but changed...More

Good cinemas but take something warm as the air-conditioning can be quite low. Also, if it is too loud you can request the speakers be toned down a bit. Nice seats and big screens in all the theatres. Inexpensive at 30 dirhams for most shows.
