One of the best cinemas in Dubai. Big screens and good experience. The only negative side is the prices jumps very high if you choose 3D, VIP or other seating categories.

The 4D experience was great fun. You actually feel like you are taking part in the movie. The seat movements and various effects totally immerse you into the action and give you an incredible feeling. Loved it.

The platinum is amazing but too costly. The food and snacks were nice I still think I. The regular cinema more food options need to be worked on.

I splurged on the platinum suites and it was certainly worth it. Comfortable chairs and attentive service.

If you are tired of walking around the Dubai Mall, why not come here for a few hours and enjoy a movie? The tickets are cheap, seats are comfortable and the picture and sound quality are great as well.

This was a very busy place located within the mall. However, we enjoyed how they regulated when you could enter the actual screening room (they called your section within about 5 minutes or so before the reel start rolling). They place your popcorn & drink in a bag, which was different. It was clean, but of course, you have the... More

Reel cinema at Dubai mall is fantastic for the movies lovers. Being located in Dubai mall is so fulfilling. Excellent seatings, many cinemas' halls and a lot of choices. It is one of the best cinemas in Dubai. You have the facility to reserve online and pick your tickets so easily when you arrive

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
