Five-screen luxury movie and entertainment centre will be part of Nakheel's The Pointe project on Palm Jumeirah
Developer Nakheel has announced that it is partnering with Reel Cinemas for a five-screen luxury movie and entertainment centre at The Pointe, the AED800 million waterfront dining and leisure destination on Dubai's Palm Jumeirah.
Reel Cinemas at The Pointe will be the first Dine-In Cinema in the region, featuring a movie theatre within a restaurant, Nakheel said in a statement.
Reel Cinemas at The Pointe further builds on the reputation of Emaar Entertainment, the statement said, adding that last year, Nakheel and Reel Cinemas confirmed a 14-screen movie complex for Al Khail Avenue mall.
Omar Khoory, director, Nakheel Retail, said: "Our partnership with Reel Cinemas reflects our vision for The Pointe: to bring Palm Jumeirah alive with a vibrant destination that offers Dubai's residents and tourists the very best in dining and entertainment. It also further highlights our commitment to building a long term relationship with Reel Cinemas as we deliver more retail projects across Dubai."
Maitha Al Dossari, CEO of Emaar Entertainment, the operator of Reel Cinemas, added: "We are further expanding the Reel Cinemas footprint through strategic partnerships. The Pointe at Palm Jumeirah by Nakheel is another outstanding location, where we will bring another innovative cinema experience that will delight all."
Located at the tip of Palm Jumeirah across the bay from Atlantis The Palm, The Pointe spans 1.4 million square feet and will feature fountain shows, a 1.5 km promenade and nearly 150 restaurants and retail outlets.
The Pointe will be accessible via The Palm Monorail, which is connected to the Dubai Tram and Dubai Metro, and by boat from Palm Jumeirah's growing number of resorts. There is also a car park with 1,600 spaces.For all the latest retail news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
