The opening of First China Bona Cinemas at Resort World Genting!!


Gong Xi Fa Cai everyone,

I'm still on Chinese New Year mode and so I went up to Genting to have some fun over the weekend. What's happening at Resort World Genting recently was the opening of first China Bona Cinemas in Malaysia at Sky Avenue by Bona Film Group with special screening of Operation Red Sea movie. Congratulations!! 



This marks a historical day for Bona Film Group as their chairman and General Manager of the board, Mr Yu Dong came personally from China for the opening of their first cinema outside of China. The event was graced by YB Senator Datuk Seri Panglima Dr Mohd Salleh (Minister of Communications and Multimedia), Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay (Chairman & Chief Executive of Genting Malaysia), Datuk Lim Chee Wah (President of VXL Group), Mr Hui Lim (Executive Director and Chief Information Officer of Genting Malaysia), and Dato Fauzi Ayob (Director General of FINAS). 


Claiming the spotlight was Mr Dante Lam (Director of Operation Red Sea), Ms Candy Leung (Producer of Operation Red Sea), Raymond Yip (Film Director), Zhai Tian Lin (Actor from China) and Dato Sophia Hu Jing.

Yu Dong said that the group has considered Resorts World Genting as an ideal location to open its first cinema given the strength of the Malaysian Chinese entertainment market and synergies with the upcoming Twentieth Century Fox World theme park. Bona Cinemas is planned to be the first project in a long term relationship between the Bona Film Group and Resorts World Genting. Special showcase and potential film festivals are being planned in Malaysia while the relationship could extend to Bona Film Group entertainment events in Beijing and Guangzhou.


Bona Cinemas at Sky Avenue currently has four cinema halls in operation. An additional two halls a 48 seat VIP theatre and a 250 seat IMAX theatre will be opening in the second half of 2018. Equipped with state of the art projection technology, Dolby Atmos surround sound systems and comfortable chairs, Bona Cinemas in Resort World Genting will showcase a full range of cinematic experiences from Hollywood blockbusters to Chinese historical epics from international comedy to local Malaysian productions. Well I will definitely come up here again to enjoy a movie at this new Bona Cinemas. If you're at Genting next time don't forget to experience it.


Operation Red Sea is a Chinese Hong Kong action film directed by Dante Lim who also directed the Operation Mekong and many other top box office movies. In earlier press conference, Dante said over CNY 500 million (approximately MYR 310 million) has been invested to produce the movie which was filmed in Morocco showcasing military battle by the Chinese military team that covers land, sea and air. The movie starring Zhang Yi, Du Jiang, Huang Jing Yu, Hai Qing and Prince Mak is based on a true story about a China-led evacuation mission during the 2015 Yemeni Civil War. The movie is co-produced and co-funded by Bona Film Group. The movie made its debut on the 22 February in Malaysia and has received tremendous good reviews. In China the movie is currently ranked no 2 with CNY 1.7 billion (approximately MYR 1.05 billlion) at the box office. Let me know if you have watch this movie.
