The Villagio Mall’s IMAX 3D Theater in Doha, Qatar will be opening in August. The Peninsula reports:

The Villaggio mall will open its 13 cinemas, one an IMAX 3D theatre, during the latter part of this month.

Mohammad Al Ali, general manager of the Qatar Bahrain Cinema Company, the company that will manage the Villaggio Mall cinemas, said they would probably open the cinemas in the third or last week of August.

Al Ali said the company was finishing the décor and the carpeting and looking into some other details. “Once we’ve finished, we will announce the grand opening.”

According to him, the cinemas at Villaggio will differ from those at the City Center mall in concept. “The bigger ones will have around 150 seats, the small ones 125 and the IMAX 3D theatre will have around 380. The IMAX will have an entirely different concept and seating,” said Al Ali.
