Opening comes following launch of Vox Cinemas Drive-in on rooftop of Mall of the Emirates
Emaar’s Reel Cinemas is to open up a drive-in concept at The Dubai Mall Zabeel.
The outfit has posted a teaser on social media to announce the upcoming launch, although details on an opening date, location and pricing are still to be revealed.
It comes following the opening of Vox Cinemas Drive-in on the rooftop of Mall of the Emirates, which was launched last week. Evening screenings are held at 7.30pm. The capacity of the Vox Cinemas Drive-in is 75 cars, with a maximum of two people per vehicle.
Once parked, audiences can tune into a designated radio frequency for the movie audio to be broadcast straight into their car. The cost per car (2 people max) is AED180+ VAT, which includes an F&B package for two people consisting of caramel popcorn, salt popcorn, nachos, M&Ms, soft drinks and water.
While Movie Nights at Aljada will launch in Sharjah on July 1 and will take place on a daily basis from 8pm each evening, with free entry on a first come, first served basis.
Visitors to the permanent cinema, which has a capacity of 150 vehicles, will be allocated specific parking spaces, depending on the size of their car, and will be able to access the sound of the movie via FM radio.
All regular cinemas across the country are currently closed as part of precautionary measures to prevent the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
