Major Cineplex’s Announces its First Cinema and Bowling Complex outside of Thailand at AEON Mall in Cambodia with Cellcard as the Naming Sponsor.

05 July 2014

Major Cineplex, the region's largest cinema operator, has just opened in Cambodia by way of a joint venture between Major Cineplex Group PLC and Platinum Cineplex in a 70:30 ratio and will be primarily supported by the Cambodia mobile phone server and Communication Company, Cellcard, as the Naming sponsor for Cinema and Bowling. The seven screen luxury cinema, with over 1,500 seats, and the bowling center opened at the end of June at AEON Mall in Phnom Penh. Major Cineplex sets a new standard for Cambodia and will be an affordable entertainment treat unlike anything Cambodian’s have ever experienced.

The entertainment complex features well-furnished large luxurious lobbies and lounges, comfortable seats that at least partially recline in well decorated cinema halls utilizing the latest in cinema technology. A VIP theatre with fully reclining seats and service at your seat will match the quality of any in the region. A 4DX theatre will soon be added in which the seats move in coordination with full length Hollywood films with over seven special effects like wind, water, fog, smells, leg ticklers and more. The Cellcard Blu-o Bowling is much more than bowling with a club like atmosphere, private party room and full F&B services.

What is most interesting about this leap in entertainment luxury for Cambodians is that the prices will be very reasonable and comparable to current cinema prices. The reason for this is the primary support of Cellcard plus the many other sponsors who have joined and are still joining like CIMB Bank, Angkor Beer, Yamaha and Coke. Their support has enabled ticket prices to be kept low for the amazing quality that will be experienced. In return Cellcard customers and other sponsors’ customers will receive continually changing benefits and special offers.

Vicha Poolvaraluk, the Chairman of the Major Group said "The Major Cineplex Group is expanding to International markets and Phnom Penh was a perfect opportunity with such a great, well located mall and so much support from the local community. We will continue to expand when such opportunities arise. Cambodians have had limited entertainment options for such a growing country with a young, fun seeking population and we believe they will embrace what we have brought”

Major Cineplex Group has 495 cinemas with about 120,000 seats opened in Thailand and over 500 lanes of bowling opened in Thailand and India. Major Cineplex also produces Thai films and hopes to bring many to Cambodia as well as getting involved in the Cambodia film market. Cellcard is the number one mobile phone server in Cambodia, established since 1998, and their dedication to quality makes them a perfect main partner for Major Cineplex.
