Cinema VIP Theaters

Watching movies is one of my favorite past times, all kinds of movies, there is no question that I like going to the movie theaters to see some amazing movies. At times I want to go watch those movies at the VIP section which might have more comfortable seats or better sound or more secluded then other theaters. I have tried a few theaters in the Middle East and Europe, but for Middle East I wanted to do a ranking and the reasons why each one is good or could be improved

Cinema VIP Theater Ranking(Out of 10):

  • Reel Cinemas (9)
  • Cinestar Dubai (8)
  • Cinescape KNCC (6)

Reel Cinemas

  • Best Service
  • Comfortable Large Lazy Boy Chairs
  • Electronic Chair Controls
  • The Chair Extends All The Way To Be Flat
  • Button To Call For Service (Actually Works)
  • Chairs Vibrate With The Effects which is fantastic
  • Very Large Screen and State of the Art Theater Sound System

Cinestar Dubai

  • More food selection
  • Comfortable Large Lazy Boy Chairs
  • Manual Chair Controls
  • The Chair Extends all the way to be flat, but requires an extra push
  • Button to Call for Service but its always broken
  • Very Large Screen with Decent Sound

Cinescape KNCC

  • Stiff Leather Seats, comfortable but after a while feels uncomfortable
  • Doesn’t lean back all the way so you don’t feel as comfortable
  • Electronic Seats which are good
  • The Screen for the VIP is very small
  • The sound is only good for the people sitting in the middle row, the edge seats don’t have good sound at all
  • The food is stale and usually pretty bad, sad excuse for popcorn

Overall between all the cinemas Reel Cinemas is fantastic and I still enjoy Cinestar Dubai, but with Cinestar KNCC I prefer to go to the regular cinema because of the much larger screen and better screen, the VIP I go to if I don’t want to be bother by the crowd.

Cairo Airport – VIP Lounge

This makes entering and leaving from Cairo Airport so much easier, I signed up for the VIP service through my travel agency and it turned out to be even better then I expected. When you leave the plane there is a bus that takes all the passengers to immigrations, but in my case a car was waiting for me and takes me straight to the VIP terminal.

You even have your own immigrations and they go get your luggage for you. I just waited in the lounge for everything to be stamped and to go through simply, and within 5 minutes I was out the door and on my way to the hotel. They have made it so easy and simple to go through that it is really worth it to use this service, and once you experience it you will not stop using it. The lounge area is very nice with separate rooms for all the guests and you can still sit in the middle area instead of the nice room. There is free wireless available for your use all over the VIP Terminal, I think that this is the best service they could have provided to passengers arriving into Cairo.
