we watched skyfall over the weekend at grand cinema, so here's our take on our experience from a to z - first, we tried to book online, so we went to the site, picked the day and the time - we reached knet payment, entered the card number and pressed pay, but there was an error, we tried a few more times but reached to the same conclusion.
we ditched that idea and went to al hamra mall, booked the tickets in person as it turned out that the website is not working - we had lunch at hanhum, and around 4 we headed to the movies - the snacks corner is nothing major, except for the absence of caramel popcorn! is it so difficult to source them?
we went in, and the first thing that caught our attention is that naked screen - it was standing at the front of the theater with out curtains or a stage to hide its steal legs - the exposed structure gives you a very negative feeling, it feels so unprofessional and so weak!
the size of the theater is rather small, the seats are not that comfortable, but the drama lies in the AC! dude the room is freezing cold can someone turn the temperature down for god sake!!
anyways, once the lights are off you don't really see the naked structure of the screen and you get into the movie mood, actually the projector resolution seemed better & sharper than cinescape.
verdict: we prefer cinescape by far, not only for the convenient locations but for the overall experience.
update: we tried to access the website again but it seems it is now under maintenance, you can check it out here - i think this is better than being online without the possibility of making any bookings.
