We welcome Cineplexx Sarajevo, our new Festival location!
Multiplex Cineplexx in Sarajevo is opening on Thursday June 17th with the movie “Fast and Furious 9”!
The new multiplex cinema, with 8 screens and covering 5000 square meters, is in the Marijin dvor area in the center of Sarajevo, right next to hotel Holiday.
The investment value of the project (excluding plot acquisition costs) is BAM 10 million (ca. EUR 5 million).
Cineplexx Sarajevo is equipped with the latest in cinema technology, which includes Dolby Atmos sound system and RealD Ultimate cinema screen.
Unlike standard cinema screens, Real D Ultimate Screen has a special surface which reflects more light towards the audience and creates a much more realistic experience.
The light in fact reflects twice, resulting in a deeper, brighter picture, and more consistent colors.
Dolby Atmos creates a mesmerizing, multidimensional sound experience allowing an immersive viewing experience. The movie atmosphere and action come alive through sound details never heard before.
Cineplexx Sarajevo offers more than 1000 seats, including special VIP leather seats, LoveBOXes and love seats.
Cineplexx Sarajevo has prepared special offers for our audiences: affordable cinema tickets every Wednesday and families and kids will enjoy special ticket packages for animated and family titles. There are special screening prices for schools, and business partners will be able to rent the halls for conferences.
Cineplexx Sarajevo’s program offers movie hits such as the latest sequel of the legendary saga Fast and Furious 9, the horror Quiet place 2 and the animated treat The Croods 2: A New Age.
