FOUR NEW THEATRES ON THE GRAND HORIZON

November 15, 2011

Breaking new ground in 2011, Selim Ramia & Co launched the first ever cineplex in Saida - Grand Cinemas Saida Mall. The stylish new theatre, a partnership project with Jamal Sannan's Eagle Films under the Grand Entertainment group, opened its doors in February, becoming the fourth GC destination in Lebanon in four years.

The smashing success of the latest GC offering is a perfect reflection of the unprecedented ascendancy of the Grand Cinemas chain throughout the country and region. By the end of 2011, Grand Cinemas will represent 40% market share in Lebanon - a stunning achievement for a brand that began three and a half short years ago. With the strong leadership of SR&Co, there is full confidence that the next 12 months will see Grand Cinemas surpassing the competition to occupy the number spot in market share.

Heading into 2012, SR&Co prepares for an exciting new stage in the Grand expansion with the launch of four brand new Grand Cinemas in the region.
