Well it's been talked about in the local press in the past, City Cinema are planing to open a 3 screen cinema in the newly opened
Last month, Muscat Daily ran a story that the cinema is going to open in the mall by the end of April. People are already beginning to question if this date is reliable because progress on site does not match this intended opening date. I have to say I kind of agree with the question of when will this cinema open, because here is a recent picture of where the cinema is supposed to be being installed:
Hmmm. Not looking like it'll be ready in a month. To be honest it doesn't even look like a cinema location with all those columns in the way, so perhaps the image is not accurate - I'll try and get in and have a peek myself.
On a plus side, City Cinema have upped their game and launched a new website in January, and their online ticketing system seems to be working a lot more reliably now. They also have a Facebook group here which seems to be fairly sporadically updated, but it is occasionally updated when there is important news.
Tickets to most shows are RO 3.000, unless it is a 3D presentation and then the cost is RO 4.000. If you book via the online ticket system, you can only use Credit Cards issued in Oman, and there is a 200bz per ticket processing fee which I think is stupid, seeing as we reduce their overhead by using this method of payment and ticket purchase - I wish these sur-charges were scrapped but at the end of the day the convenience charge of 200bz for not having to line up hours ahead of a show to book tickets is worth it.
In other interests, I'm running another Radio poll, this time on Facebook (for a change) - I'd really appreciate your input if you have a minute to spare.
Also - if you haven't entered the contest for 2 VIP tickets to see Sunidhi Chauhan this coming weekend, then you've gotta be in it to win it!
