Novo Cinema

With a rich legacy of cinema firsts, a passion for movies and a mission to entertain film fans everywhere, Novo Cinemas is proud to be the largest and a cinematic industry leader in the Middle East.

Our journey began in the year 2000 with the launch of our flagship cinema in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, which would be the cornerstone of an entertainment chain that would soon extend across borders and introduce to the region such pioneering technologies as online booking, e-kiosks and the first cinema-dedicated mobile app, in addition to the UAE’s first IMAX screen.

In 2012, we joined ELAN Group as part of the Gulf Film Group, and so began an exciting new chapter in our story. Attuned to the evolving social habits and needs of today’s movie-goers, in 2014 we re-inaugurated the chain as Novo Cinemas, an identity that would reflect our promise of a complete entertainment experience.

In the same year, we opened our doors at World Trade Centre-Abu Dhabi, a location near and dear to Emirati hearts in the capital’s old central market, and took premium cinema to Qatar, welcoming movie-goers at the luxury island destination of The Pearl-Qatar. As a result, our expansive network now spans no fewer than 129 screens and 24,000 seats in 15 locations across the UAE, Qatar and Bahrain. Ongoing expansion will see our numbers grow to over 235 screens in over 24 locations by 2017- and our IMAX network extended to seven spectacular screens including the largest IMAX laser screen in the Middle East and the latest MX4D theater experience from the USA.

Where people once came together solely for a viewing experience, now they meet, share, contribute, celebrate and connect. We became the largest chain of cinemas in the Middle East by pushing boundaries, pioneering change, and consistently striving for the “new”.


At Novo Cinemas, we share a passion for movies, a firm belief in the importance of team work and dedication to fulfilling our promise of a Great Time Out. Along with our parent company, Gulf film, we welcome applicants in all departments.
