Dubai spells grandeur is everything and the city’s movie screens are nothing cliche either. Here are 5 luxury movie experiences in Dubai all movie buffs will love.
Dubai is known for all things that’s the world’s best and cinema halls are not limited to the standard too! The city offers an array of luxury movie experience, allowing movie-buffs to enjoy their favourite blockbuster like never before. From movie under the stars, to dine-in cinemas which lets you savor gourmet cuisine and child-friendly screens, we’ve carefully handpicked the 5 best movie experiences all movie buffs will love.
1. Reel Cinemas
Reel cinemas in collaboration with Rove hotel, bring alive the concept of dine-in-cineams. The boutique cinema only has one screen decked with 46 seats, splashed in a palette of colors. Pay up a small fee of AED 70 and you get a tub of popcorn, soft drinks in fancy flavors like wasabi, cream and strawberry. That’s not all! You can also order alcohol- AED 35 spirits, AED 40 for beers and wines and AED 175 for a full bottle (if you want to take some home, perhaps). The food menu is appetizing enough too- mini burgers, nachos and potato skins- they have it all. The theatre screens international and regional movies. And what we love most is that your food is brought to your seat when its ready, so no waiting in long queues or missing parts of the movie.
2. Theatre By Rhodes
Vox cinemas are big players in the theatre industry and we now, know why! They take their food seriously. Forget nachos, popcorn, and coke when you come here because you are in for something bigger. Vox Cinemas in partnership with Michelin starred chef Gary Rhodes, offers movie goers a fine-dining experience while enjoying your favorite blockbusters. You read it right! So whether its chicken, lamp chops, fish and chips or cheese cake- you can enjoy it all in true gourmet style. Plus, the seats are over-sized, reclinable and come with a side table, pillow and duvet. And yes, food gets delivered to your seat! Need more?
3. Screen X
The first theatre, offering a 270 degree movie experience, Screen X is now open at Reel Cinemas in the Dubai Mall. The theatre is small and the screen extends into three walls of the hall, making viewers part of an immersive cinema concept. The seats are nothing fancy. They have 2 categories- X and XPlus, with the latter offering more leg room and docked in the last rows. We wouldn’t recommend you watch a romcom here. Reserve this for action and adventure and you are sure to have a ball of a time.
4. La Playa Lounge Outdoor Cinema
Dubai’s outdoor cinema scene is popular, especially during the winter months. La Playa has the biggest outdoor screen in Dubai (20m x 10m high-definition). There are plush white sofas which double up as seats and beds (for the more relaxed). So, you can chill with shisha, a tub of popcorn, or nachos. Headsets are provided for movie lovers and the staff are happy to give you a blanket if the temperature dips. The cinema also plays national and international football matches for sports fans. Though this is not the place for diehard movie fans, it is an ideal spot for a family outing.
5. Kids Cinemas At Vox
If you are taking your child for a movie, this is the perfect theatre. The Kids screen at Vox allows kids to experience movies tailored to their taste. Coloured seats, animation or adventure films along with their favourite snack- isn’t that the idea of a movie for every child? Plus, it’s an ideal place to safely leave the kids while wandering around the Mall of the Emirates.
