Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the brand, Lebanese cinema operator Empire Cinemas entered the Saudi Arabian market in 2019, with the opening of their first theatre in Jizan. After having completed the 10-screen project successfully, the client tasked Havelock One to take care of a much larger and complex project at Al Rashid Mall in Al Khobar. 18 theatres, including three auditoria for kids, two Dolby Atmos movie theatres, three VIP and one immersive 4DX cinema, as well as public and BOH areas, cover a total space of 6,214 sqm.

In 2021, after successfully completing cineplex projects in Jizan and Al Kohbar, Havelock One signed an agreement with Empire Cinemas to deliver three additional Multiplexes at Othaim Mall, Al Ahsa (8 screens, 714 seats, 2,886 sqm), Othaim Mall, Rabwa, Riyadh (10 screens, 1,254 seats, 4,785 sqm) and Al Rashid Mega Mall, Madina (10 screens, 744 seats, 3,250 sqm). All were conceptaulised by Empire Cinemas’ long-standing design partner, DNA Architects & Planners, and fitted-out by Havelock One interiors.

All millworks were supplied by our factory in Askar, Bahrain, while the acoustic decorative finishes inside the theatres were sourced from China and the carpet was specified from a supplier in South Africa.

To date, Havelock One has delivered the turnkey fit out of five Empire Cinemas in five different cities within KSA.
