A fitting addition to Dubai's first ever shopping centre

Phase 1 of the Reel Cinemas, Al Ghurair development delivered eight state-of-the-art cinema theatres with cutting-edge audiovisual technology, as well as an attractive F&B area.

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.

Something for all the family

Phase two added 10 further theatres, with options for moviegoers at the 7,000m2 complex including a Dolby Cinema, luxury Platinum Suites and a Reel Junior theatre for kids – providing something for all the family. The completed scheme accommodates 1,800 seats across its 18 cinema theatres.

State-of-the-art theatres in a dedicated wing

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.
