In the Kingdom of Bahrain, many businesses coped with COVID-19’s economic challenges with a strong dose of creativity. This was particularly true for those in the hard-hit recreation sector.
One standout idea was the launch of Bahrain’s first and only drive-in cinema. Created and operated by Pico and Mukta A2 cinemas for an initial period between July 2020 and January 2021, it would be located centrally in Manama on a site of approximately 15,000 sq. m. at Bahrain Bay.
