“With Al Khor Mall Cinema, QBIC is the largest cinema company in Qatar with 30 screens at three different locations in the country,” said QBIC’s chief operating officer Khalil Amin.
“We will continue our expansion strategy in Qatar and will announce the opening of an additional 13 screens very soon,” he added. LuLu Group International director Mohamed Althaf pointed out that Al Khor Mall, which has more than 100 existing tenants and a large food court, has served over 25mn shoppers and visitors since its opening three and a half years ago.
“With the multiplex opening, the visitor flow is going to further improve. Considering such high loyalty and patronage from the customers and majority of the families, the mall has also added new retail concepts to enhance the shopping atmosphere,” he added.
