The Mall of Qatar has revealed plans for a new family entertainment centre which will include the world’s largest IMAX cinema screen and the world’s first indoor Angry Birds theme park.
Scheduled to open by the end of 2015, the cinema with over 3,000 seats will anchor the new centre, according to a statement.
The mall will be home to the largest IMAX screen in the world that introduces new ground-breaking 3D laser technology, the statement added.
The new centre will be constructed on multiple levels and includes six exclusive VIP screens, bowling lanes and a host of new and unique in-theatre dining options.
With over five million square feet of built up area, the completed mall will also be home to 500 shops and 80 F&B outlets.
There will also be a five star fashion hotel featuring 210 rooms – part of the Curio Collection by Hilton.
Speaking on behalf of the project, Moutaz Al Khayyat, executive director of main contractor UCC, said: “The last mall to be delivered in Qatar was the Villaggio in 2006 – since this time, the national population has increased by over a million so we believe there is certainly the demand.
