MBO Cinemas @ Starling Mall With MBO Kecil, MBO Big Screen, MBO Premier & MX4D
Just recently, I've had the opportunity to catch the latest (at that time) movie Beauty & The Beast over at the spanking new MBO Cinemas @ Starling Mall, Damansara Uptown. It was at that time too, that the big guns from MBO Cinemas unveiled their latest offerings featuring various unique viewing concepts. We were brought to experience the MBO Kecil, MBO Big Screen, MBO Premier as well as the superb state of the art MX4D technology.

The new cinema located at Damansara Uptown’s stylish Starling Mall, increases the total number of outlets to 27 nationwide. Yes, they have that many nationwide. I've always been a fan of MBO Cinemas as I found out their pricing is still reasonable, compared to the exorbitant prices their competitors charge.

“We are happy to announce that this new concept will allow urban audiences to choose how they want to view a movie. They could either bring the whole family, indulge in a luxurious setting with a loved one or have a more experiential journey with state-of-the-art technology,” said Mariam Yazmin El Bacha, Director of Operations.
Interesting new line-up of cinemas at Starling Mall, which includes the MBO Kecil. It's a oncept hall that serves as a dedicated space catering to parents and their children from all ages and sizes. With elements like Kecil Sofabed, bean bags and a playground inside the cinema, MBO is pioneering the effort to change the way that families interact at the movies.

Unlike traditional cinemas, MBO Kecil will allow kids to run free and play to their heart’s content while enjoying their best-loved films. Not my thing, but hey, I'm sure there will be parents who will want to bring their kids here to enjoy!

MBO Big Screen
For the more initiated movie fans, MBO Big Screen has been equipped with state-of-the-art technology courtesy of a recent partnership with BARCO. Their flagship laser RGB projector, the first of its kind in Malaysia, brings advanced image quality to the big screen with outstanding brightness, high contrast, and superior colour performance. The new screen at Starling Mall is set to be one of the biggest in the country and is coupled with DOLBY ATMOS’s rich, realistic sound system.
Ah, now here's a hall I like. The MBO Premier is embellished with details that provide for a luxurious setting, including a reclining sofa leather chair and a movable table facing a wall to wall screen.

“We want people to enjoy Premier every day, so we made all this possible under a very accessible ticket price. Audiences are guaranteed to be delighted with a cinematic experience of high- end comfort and style, they may even forget they are sitting in a theatre,” said Mariam again.

Fancy being rocked from side to side, getting wet when watching a movie, or feel the fresh breeze on your face? How about getting a whiff of the smell of roses when Beauty & The Beast is being shown? Imagine no more, we were treated to a short showcase of Media Motion's MX4D, the latest addition in MBO Cinemas Starling Mall. I'm sold, this is really very cool, you must try it!
Movie goers will also enjoy the customary popcorn and soda, although MBO is breaking tradition even on this front with its introduction of Cafecito – a unique coffeehouse themed concession stand serving fancy beverages and light snacks.
