Mall cinemas in Dubai

Dubai Hills Mall Roxy Xtreme

Boasting the largest cinema screen in the Middle East, the Roxy Xtreme screen is a whopping 28m high by 15.1m wide, which is the size of two tennis courts. When watching a film here, you can sit in the Director’s Boxes which host 12 people in private and comes with food served by a personal waiter. Along with the huge screen, there are 14 others that offer Platinum and Sliver services each offering reclining seats and premium food.

MX4D by Novo Cinemas at Dubai Festival City Mall

Dubai Festival City Mall might be home to the two-time Guinness World Record-breaking light and laser show Imagine, but there’s also an 18-screen Novo Cinema with an MX4D inside the shopping centre. If you haven’t tried out a 4D cinema yet, are you even a movie buff? What is a 4D cinema experience? Expect the seats that move along to the action on-screen and technology that ensures audiences can experience the smells and sensations in key scenes. One of the very best cinema experiences in Dubai, and one of the most fun, too.

ScreenX at Reel Cinemas in The Dubai Mall

If you want to talk about an immersive cinematic experience, forget about IMAX, as Reel Cinemas at The Dubai Mall has rolled out ScreenX – the UAE’s first multi-projection screening system offering audiences a 270-degree cinema screen. That means even your peripheral vision will be fully engaged in the latest blockbusters. The technology expands the image of films onto three of the cinema’s walls without distorting what’s on screen, and is perfect for watching action-packed flicks or getting scared by whatever monstrosities are lurking around the corner in horror movies. This is one of the best cinema experiences in Dubai, at the world’s largest shopping mall.
