Indulge in movies and a meal with this new gourmet cinema experience.
Sometimes big screens and reclining seats just don’t cut it, and you need more than popcorn to satisfy your cravings. So, when we heard that VOX Cinemas were collaborating with Saudi Arabian celebrity chef Mona Mosly, we knew that this was a blockbuster event.
The VOX Cinemas and Mona Mosley luxury concept is available exclusively at Riyadh’s VOX Cinemas The Kingdom Centre, The Esplanade, Sahara Mall, and Jeddah’s Red Sea Mall. If you want to indulge, book the GOLD experience, which feels like a first-class flight with waiters, blankets and pillows.
Thanks to the new gourmet dining experience, guests can choose from 20 dishes in a specially curated menu. The meal can be enjoyed in the lounge or delivered straight to your seat. Plus, the cinema-friendly, Saudi-inspired food includes Saudi fish and chips, khubz mhalla, rose kakadeh and the fittingly named Mona shawarma.
Mona is one of the kingdom’s most celebrated chefs, and is well known for being the host and a judge on the television show Top Chef Middle East. After training professionally in Switzerland and attending the world-renowned Le Cordon Bleu in London, she returned to the Middle East.
Chef Mona Mosly explains: “VOX Cinemas has set the standard in cinema dining in the GCC and I’m extremely proud to partner with them given our shared dedication to innovation and excellence as well as the outreach to the Arab world that VOX has to offer. I am confident that this collaboration is a recipe for success and look forward to bringing dishes from my heart to yours at VOX Cinemas in Saudi.”
Mohamed Al Hashemi, Country Head at Majid Al Futtaim Leisure, Entertainment, Cinemas and Lifestyle in Saudi Arabia, added: “Given her culinary prowess and unique talent, VOX Cinemas is excited to collaborate with Chef Mona Mosly and unveil her as the new face of our in-cinema dining experience.”
VOX Cinemas and Mona Mosley are the latest high-profile cinema and chef to collaborate. Recently, acclaimed chef Akira Back curated a menu for VOX Cinemas across the UAE, Kuwait and Qatar.
