It’s being called the Sea Cinema and it’s proving to be quite the success as several moviegoers’ line up outside its ticket counters at the beach. There is only one screen inside and all shows are taking place during the night. As who would want to boil while watching a movie, right?
The open-air cinema is being operated by homegrown Saudi cinema brand Muvi.
This is jeddah #muvi by the sea! 🥳🥳🥳 Don't miss an unforgettable experience… visit us on Jeddah’s cornich between sections 5 & 6 starting today for a great lineup of movies! 🏖🏖

We are not sure if this cinema will be a year-round thing, but what we do know is that it’s a welcome change that Jeddah Season has brought to the city.
