Reel Cinemas complex fully completed at Dubai’s Al Ghurair Centre

The second phase of the 18-screen Reel Cinemas complex at Dubai’s Al Ghurair Centre has opened to the public.

This final phase adds 10 theatres to the eight opened earlier this year, with options for moviegoers at the 7,000m2 complex now including a Dolby Cinema, luxury Platinum Suites and a Reel Junior theatre for kids – providing something for all the family. The scheme now accommodates 1,800 seats across its 18 cinema theatres.

The development makes extensive use of cutting-edge audiovisual technology, as well as delivering an attractive F&B area. The cinema sits in its own dedicated, two-level wing, which connects to the rest of the centre via a link bridge. Moviegoers will be entitled to an extra two hours’ free parking on top of the standard four hours for Al Ghurair shoppers.

Showing regional, Bollywood and international films, the Reel Cinemas complex is a fitting leisure attraction for the region’s first ever shopping centre, helping to bring a strong sense of experience to the flagship destination.

Chapman Taylor created the design concept for the Al Ghurair cinema complex, then oversaw detailed design with contractor ATS.
