More about Kinepolis

Mission and strategy

Kinepolis wants to create sustainable value for customers, employees, shareholders, partners and the community. The three pillars of its strategic model go hand in hand with sustainable enterprise.

History of the Group

Kinepolis Group has its roots in the 1960s, when the late Albert Bert added a second screen to the Majestic cinema in Harelbeke. In 1988 the families Bert and Claeys introduced the world’s first megaplex, the 25-screen Kinepolis Brussels.

Core businesses

Kinepolis is primarily known as a cinema operator, but the range of the group's strategic activities is much broader and more diversified. A distinction is made between seven core activities.

Innovation and customer experience

Customer experience is key at Kinepolis. The company strives for the highest quality standard, and continues to invest in cinema technology and experience concepts.

Sustainability

Kinepolis proceeds from a long-term vision, in which creating a positive impact on stakeholders and society, as well as reducing any negative impact as far as possible, automatically leads to a sustainable economic narrative. Kinepolis is fully committed to creating 'shared value'.

Working @ Kinepolis

Without the commitment and talent of its employees, Kinepolis would not be able to offer the unique movie experience it promises. That's why Kinepolis wants to do everything possible to create a unique work environment, where each employee has the opportunity to develop his or her talents.
