Yes Planet Multiplex to Overlook Old City of Jerusalem

The NIS 150 million multiplex will feature 16 screens, four auditoriums, an IMAX theater and a DX4 multidimensional movie auditorium.

The city of Jerusalem has big plans for the Sherover Promenade overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem, with a new multiplex to include an IMAX theater.

The 28,500-square meter facility will be only part of a comprehensive tourism and cultural complex expected to begin at the Jaffa Gate.

The complex will run past the Sultan’s Pool, continue past the Cinamateque, the Khan Theater and the old Ottoman Train Station (now filled with kitschy little shoppes and restaurants), to the promenade, from Abu Tor to Armon Hanatziv.

The six-floor multiplex is to be built jointly by Yes Planet together with its mother company Cinema City International NV and will include a 400-space, three-level parking garage as well as a nearby parking lot to relieve the crazy traffic congestion that drivers traveling into the capital fear most of all.

The NIS 150 million multiplex will feature 16 screens, four auditoriums, an IMAX theater and a DX4 multidimensional movie auditorium in addition to showrooms, art exhibition space, cafes, restaurants, commercial space, book and music stores.

In addition to Sherover Foundation chairman Uzi Wexler, Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat told reporters this week that he feels the ‘shidduch’ with Yes Planet and the movie scene is simply a good fit.

“The new Sherover-Yes Planet Center will add to Jerusalem’s cultural renaissance and to the countless cultural sites that have opened in the city in the past few years,” Barkat said. Yes Planet CEO Moshe (Mooky) Greidinger added that the state-of-the-art technologies featured in the complex will make the cinematic experience especially enjoyable for the multiplex consumer.
