The capital’s latest multiplex movie complex, Yes Planet Jerusalem, will have its grand opening today. The 16-screen, six-story theater is located just off Hebron Road on Naomi Street in the Abu Tor neighborhood. The 28,500 square meter compound is the latest venture for the Yes Planet chain, which already has movie theater complexes in Haifa, Ramat Gan and Rishon Lezion. The Jerusalem Yes Planet was built in a little over a year at a cost of approximately NIS 200 million.
Mooky Greidinger, the CEO of Cineworld, which owns the Israeli chains Yes Planet and Rav Hen, said at a press event Tuesday, “It’s a big day for us. Yes Planet Jerusalem features the newest generation of cinema technology… Now it’s not just about what movies we see, but how we see them.”
