Rent a Cinema: Cinemagic

Post by Mark

Most of you know Cinemagic from their weekly rooftop movie nights but it turns out they’ve also got a small movie theater that they rent out. They originally called me because they wanted to participate in the giveaways last month but since I didn’t have any more space left I told them I would post about them anyway because their theater sounded interesting. They’re located near my house so I went to check the place out and was pretty impressed at how cool their set up was. They’re using the $100,000 Sony SRX-R110 4K cinema projector which is very cool, they had a movie playing when I was there and it looked amazing.

The theater has 12 comfortable reclining leather seats and they provide you with free drinks and munchies . You can rent the theater to watch live television so if there is a football match or a UFC fight you could watch it there. You could also rent out the theater to play xbox or PS3 games, they have both consoles just bring your own game. Finally they have both an HD-DVD and Blu-ray player with hundreds of Blu-ray and HD-DVD movies for you to choose from.

They have two rental prices, non peak and peak prices. Non peak price is KD96 for 3 hours while the peak price is KD144 for 3 hours. So if you are 12 guys thats KD8 per person during non peak hours and KD12 per person during peak hours. If you’re interested visit their website [Here].

For those of you who don’t know about their rooftop screenings you could also visit their website for more information on that.

RIP Patrick Swayze

Just the other night I was watching the movie 11:14 and thinking how I’ve started to like Patrick Swayze more as he’s gotten older. Very sad. [Link]

Bollywood film shot in Kuwait

Post by Mark

I heard about this movie awhile back and just watched the trailer now. The movie is called “Kahin Na Kahin Milenge” and its the first Bollywood movie made in Kuwait. I am not sure if I got the story straight since the trailer is in Indian but I think its about this Indian girl who grew up in Kuwait and moved back to India and became a famous actress but then decided to move back to Kuwait because its her home? I could be wayyy off here so please correct me if I am wrong. [YouTube]

Cinescape VIP Seats

Post by Mark

I don’t go to the movies here much because of the censorship but yesterday I ended up going to watch Star Trek at the Avenues cinema with Marzouq, Nibaq, k.thekuwaiti and some other friends. It was my first time trying out the VIP theater and I think I might start going to the movies more often because of it. The theater fits around 20 seats all of which can be electronically controlled to recline. The VIP section also has its own munchies bar which means you don’t have to wait in the long lines outside with everyone else. It feels like sitting and watching a movie at home on a very huge screen. All that for just KD6 which is a steal!

Star Trek was a great movie, definitely the best Star Trek yet.
