About Us

Fulfilling Derek A. Chin's dream of providing quality family entertainment to Trinidad and Tobago, we present to you the magical world of MovieTowne.  What began as a mere idea over a decade ago has now evolved into an important nationwide brand that is highly respected locally, regionally and internationally.

The MovieTowne franchise is wholly owned, developed and operated by local Trinidadian businessmen, led by its founder and Chairman Derek Chin and it employs over 250 Trinidad and Tobago nationals.  The business has achieved a phenomenal growth rate and has revolutionized the cinema and entertainment industry in Trinidad and Tobago, now defining it as the premier cinema and entertainment complex in Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean.

Since opening its doors in late 2002, the state of the art multi-screen Cineplex has elevated the tastes and expectations of all Trinidadians and Tobagonians, with an ambience and energy that have defined it as the preferred venue for the local movie-going public. With three locations and 22 screens nationwide (Port of Spain 10, Chaguanas 8 and Tobago 4), the MovieTowne brand has become synonymous with elaborately-themed decor, large screens, the latest cinema 2D and 3D technology, Dolby Digital Surround Sound and comfortable stadium-styled seating in amphitheater-designed cinemas that conform to the highest international standards.

The flagship enterprise at MovieTowne Port of Spain promises something for everyone and it offers a one-stop destination for quality entertainment.  It has become the most popular hot spot for dining, liming, shopping, live entertainment and enjoying quality time with family, friends and visitors.  This multi-faceted complex facility is home to many amenities and attractions other than just the modern cinemas, including a Mediterranean style courtyard Mall, with over 60 elegant Retail Shops and Restaurants, Fiesta Plaza, an outdoor dining and live entertainment area, The Banquet and Conference Centre, an exquisite banquet facility and The Carousel Park, which features exciting rides and outdoor fun for kids and families.

MovieTowne continues to lead the way in the entertainment arena as its founders never cease to develop new and spectacular offerings for all citizens to enjoy. The vision will soon expand taking the franchise to other communities in Trinidad with the current San Fernando project, as well as Guyana, the first gateway to taking the MovieTowne brand beyond our shores to the rest of the Caribbean region.

MovieTowne is waiting to delight you with an unparalleled entertainment experience that is sure to impress you.
