Paradise 24 is a 97,000-square-foot, 24-screen cineplex, offering an immersive Egyptian experience. The sloped, battered walls and distressed patina lend the ambiance of the ancient temple at Karnak. The cinema features a north wing reminiscent of the sandy, desert-like upper Nile and a south wing themed as the more lush delta plain. Statues of Ramses and sphinxes guard the concessions, which are located at the end of an indoor/outdoor mosaic of the Nile. Cinema patrons drive in past a huge entry pylon, and then park in the Luxor, Delta or Nile lots. Wayfinding signage and murals are colored in traditional Egyptian pottery hues, and wall surfaces feature quasi-hieroglyphics.
