Kinepolis has concluded a lease agreement with real estate company General de Galerías Comerciales to take over the operation of two Spanish cinemas: one in Mataró (Barcelona) and the other in Marbella, in the successful La Cañada shopping mall. Both cinemas operate in markets with high purchasing power and demand for premium products.
After the take-over, Kinepolis is planning to introduce its premium concepts, such as laser projection, premium seating and the megacandy concept, in both cinemas.
This take-over will bring the number of Kinepolis cinemas in Spain up to 10, including the two largest in the country (Kinepolis Ciudad de la Imagen in Madrid and Full Barcelona). The 10 Spanish cinemas have a total of 157 screens and nearly 38,000 seats.
