Selim Ramia & Co this week welcomed in the new year with an updated slate of projects for 2011. The announcement reveals launch dates for five new Grand Cinemas theatres throughout the Middle East, namely in Lebanon, Syria, Kuwait and Jordan.

First up on the Grand roster of destinations is the brand new mall in one of Lebanon’s most burgeoning cities. Saida Mall recently opened its doors to much fanfare, unveiling a comprehensive bouquet of over 100 stores and services. As its entertainment hub, Grand Cinemas Saida Mall will soon be offering residents and visitors a premiere cinema experience close to home. Lebanon's fourth GC destination at Saida Mall is scheduled for inauguration in February.

Meanwhile, excitement is building for the country’s fifth Grand location, at none other than ABC Mall, Dbayeh. Taking the standard to new heights, Grand Cinemas ABC Dbayeh will welcome visitors early 2012.

Launch plans are also in the final stages for a seven-screen destination at Aleppo's popular Shahba Mall. Syria's first ever multiplex, the highly anticipated Grand Cinemas Shahba Mall will be open to the public in the first quarter of the coming year.

Also in 2012, moviegoers can expect to be entertained in Jordan’s third GC theatre, situated at the brand new Taj Mall, and due for inauguration in September. Grand Taj Cinemas is a partnership between SR&CO, Jamal Sannan and Yousef Al Taher. Furthermore, construction is in full swing at Kuwait’s prestigious Al Hamra Tower, which will usher in the country’s first cinema - Grand Cinemas.
