Our World: Jeddah's First Movie Theater!

Last week I went to my first movie in an actual theater in Jeddah.  The brand new VOX Theater recently opened at the Red Sea Mall, and it is the first movie theater in Jeddah!  Tickets are purchased online or at the kiosk machines just outside the theater.

It was fitting and somewhat ironic that the very first movie I saw in a theater here was about women's rights - "On the Basis of Sex" about wonder woman and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg. 

I was happy to see several Saudi women employed at the refreshments counter.  One suggestion I would have for the theater management is to provide more than one small seating area for those waiting for their movies. There is definitely not enough seating outside the theater in the lobby waiting area.  The seats inside the theater, however, are cushy and comfortable.  It was a fantastic theater experience.

Aside from the Arabic lettering around some spots, this wouldn't be all that different from the newer theatres here.
