The ultimate ways to watch a flick


There are few more relaxing experiences than sitting back and watching a good movie. So it comes as no surprise that Dubai presents extraordinary options. Whether you’re sitting under the stars, at a luxury lounge with a waiter at your service or experiencing unbelievable special effects – a cinema experience is a must on the itinerary.



Platinum experience

Platinum experience


Reel Cinemas’ Platinum Suites at The Dubai Mall has to be experienced to be believed. Think plush twin recliner seats with masses of legroom. The seats are fully adjustable with not one, not two but three settings dedicated just to reclining. There are plenty of gourmet food and beverage offerings, and even blankets and pillows available to make you feel completely at home.

Under the stars


Catch the latest blockbusters al fresco, with the best visual technology and Dolby 7.1 surround sound. On the rooftop of Galleria Mall, tickets to Vox Cinemas OUTDOOR include seats and a food and beverage pack, as well as a blanket when it's winter. The standard seating areas offer large bean bags and single seats with tables, and you can also book VIP couches for two if you are feeling romantic.

4DX effects


They say cinema is getting more realistic, and with Virgin Radio 4DX at Vox Cinemas, this is certainly true. The most immersive experience imaginable, 4DX really throws viewers into the action. As well as motion seats, visitors may also experience rain, fog, wind, water, lightning and even smells during screenings. Why just watch a movie when you can live it?

7-star cinema


The VIP cinema experience at Novo has recently been revamped, and now offers a regional take on the glitzy movie affair. Choose the 7-star experience that allows you to choose from an array of authentic Middle Eastern dishes with an à la carte menu, and have it served direct to your chair. The 7-star screens also boast a private VIP lounge, personal butler service and fully-reclining leather seats with soft pillows and blankets, as well as your own valet entrance.

Art house flair


Here’s one for the indie fans. The region’s first art house cinema – Cinema Akil – curates high-quality films from across the globe and showcases them at the city’s leading arts hub, Alserkal Avenue. During the cooler months, you’ll find hundreds sprawling across The Yard, watching special screenings under the stars. The best part? The community-led screenings are often free to attend.

Beachside screenings


The region’s original boutique cinema experience, Roxy Cinemas offer a vintage ode to movies, with all the trimmings. Located at The Beach at JBR, even the lowest standard is plush. Silver Plus – the entry-level seating – features comfortable, stadium-style seats and top-notch sound and images. The premium Platinum Plus is where the magic happens with a lounge-style setting, recliner seats and a VIP call button. There are other Roxy locations, including at locations like City Walk and La Mer.

Dine-in cinema


Reel Cinemas’ recent collaboration with superstar chef Guy Fieri has generated a real buzz in the city. Dubai’s first stand-alone dine-in cinema that features the chef’s acclaimed American Kitchen concept can be found at Jebel Ali. Meals are delivered to the table of filmgoers straight from the kitchen, with Fieri’s signature mac & cheese burger, trash can nachos and New York cheesecake being firm favourites.

Dine-in cinema

Brilliantly boutique


When the popular Rove Downtown opened a cinema underneath its roof, it was the first movie theatre to open in a hotel in Dubai. With just 46 seats, it’s a cosy and intimate affair, with added benefits like valet parking at the hotel and stylised seating. But perhaps the best part is that each ticket comes with a drink and popcorn, to truly complete the full theatre experience.
