Introducing 3D Movies at Discovery Cinema!

We are pleased to introduce 3D movies at the KAUST Discovery Cinema!

To launch this fun new way of experiencing films at KAUST, you are invited to special showings of "Turning Red" in 3D from May 16 to 28.

Our popular red carpet photobooth will be available with the first print FREE of charge (5 SAR per succeeding prints). Available one hour before the scheduled 3D screenings. 

3D glasses will be available at the Ticketing Booth for SAR 15 each, or you can bring your own. We encourage you to keep your 3D glasses and bring them to future 3D movies.

For more information, email cinema@kaust.edu.sa or call 012 808-6528 during Cinema hours.

See you at the Cinema!
