VIP Cinescape – Avenues


I have been wanting to go see a movie specifically in the VIP section of the cinema for a while now, but I haven’t had the chance except for the other day. We kept hearing how good it is and how people are comparing it to the Gold Class of Dubai.

We were five guys who went to go see this movie, and we weren’t sure what to expect but we knew were going to enjoy ourselves. The entrance and the new cinema is very nice, and it seems they understood that they can make the movies more entertaining which better visuals and design which is what they did.

The VIP section is a little ways down the hall, and when we entered they had their own stand for food which is a good start, I didn’t have high expectations for the service.

Then we entered the movie theater and it was nicely designed so that only a certain number of people would go see the movie, its good to keep the riff raff out. I was disappointed by the seat that they chose, whats the use of it being electric if it doesn’t go all the way. The one in Dubai is much more comfortable and cozy, you really sink in and you can sit any way you like. The seat in Dubai can almost go completely flat but the one in Kuwait is limited to a certain degree which was a bit disappointing.

The service was bad just as I expected, they only had the usual items but what was worse is that they were charging an arm and a leg for the normal items such as popcorn and drinks. It took the gentlemen 20 minutes for us just to get drinks and popcorn when it would have taken me 5 minutes if I went myself. It feels like they did a lot for the look of the VIP, but they didn’t get the seats right and cut it short at the service, people are willing to spend 8 KD or 10 KD if the service is great as they tell because the VIP is always sold out. At least this is better then what we had before, but still a disappointment.
