Ras Al Khaimah, November 12, 2013
Al Hamra Mall, a top shopping and leisure destination in the southern part of Ras Al Khaimah, which recently completed its expansion, has posted a 36 per cent increase in footfall.
Existing retailers and food outlets have reported that their sales had reached record numbers during last month’s Eid Al Adha.
Al Hamra Mall has increased its leasable space by 35 per cent; and also opened Vox cinemas and FunVille. The mall will include new fashion stores and dining options to satisfy the demands of the multinational population of Ras Al Khaimah and the growing number of international tourists.
Wesam Aldora, Al Hamra Mall manager, said “We are delighted to finish the expansion of the mall, and with the opening of Vox Cinemas and FunVille, we can now cater to a larger audience. We are confident the expansion will attract and bring more visitors thus giving residents and tourists in the Al Hamra area additional entertainment options.”
The expansion will also bring other fashion, lifestyle, entertainment and restaurant brands, such as F&F, Gocco, Johnny Rockets, Pan Emirates, Dwell, Hertz, Chili’s, Papa John’s Pizza and The Face Shop, among others. Shoppers can experience the special ambience of Arabic styled walkways in what is said to be one of the most attractive malls in the UAE.
The opening of Vox Cinemas means local movie buffs can now enjoy a superior cinema experience with the introduction of a new 8-screen cinema in Al Hamra Mall.
“Vox Cinemas are proud to be the leader in the concept of luxury cinemas and we are delighted to bring this premium experience to residents and visitors to Al Hamra Mall,” said Cameron Mitchell, CEO of Majid Al Futtaim Cinemas.
“Movie-goers in Ras Al Khaimah will now be able to enjoy the latest blockbusters in a variety of different ways, including our ‘big-screen’ Vox Max concept, which will be the largest cinema screen in the Emirate, and our luxury Vox Gold concept.”
The Vox Gold cinema will offer a more exclusive experience with fully reclining armchairs and adjustable footrests arranged in pairs with their own private table and unsurpassed levels of service allowing visitors to order drinks and snacks throughout the movie.
All standard cinemas offer value oriented standard seats and upgradeable VIP seat options; with all eight screens fully digital of which four are 3D-enabled showing more sessions and movie selections than any other cinema in Ras Al Khaimah.
