Allowing us to continue creating great moments for movie lovers in Bahrain, our new location at The Avenues – Bahrain is designed to offer an exceptional entertainment experience for our customers. Featuring two of our most innovative cinema concepts under one roof, there is no doubt that our THEATRE by Rhodes and MAX offerings will present a very exciting new entertainment proposition for Bahrain’s residents and regional visitors.”
The first of its kind in Bahrain, THEATRE by Rhodes brings unrivalled indulgence to the new VOX Cinemas venue by delivering a perfect combination of the best of film and food. With an exclusive menu created by Michelin-starred chef Gary Rhodes, THEATRE by Rhodes sets a new standard for “dinner and a movie”. The concept’s gourmet in-cinema dining allows movie enthusiasts to revel in unsurpassed VIP treatment, lavish lounge areas, dedicated in-theatre waiter service and an outstanding menu with made-to-order fine food.
Dubbed as VOX Cinemas’ mega-screen experience, the MAX concept provides audiences with extraordinary sensory entertainment thanks to state-of-the-art technology that includes Dolby Atmos surround sound and dual projector systems that deliver ultra-realistic, 100 per cent digital imagery. Spacious MAX seating options also provide guests with an extra layer of comfort when watching the biggest blockbusters.
The new venue will include VOX Cinemas’ top-quality food and beverage offering plus a dedicated Nutella Bar serving the much-loved chocolate spread in a variety of delicious forms, including crepes, pancakes and waffles.
