It has its own special lounge while waiting for your seats. Great comfortable recliners with blanket and pillows and great customer service and food delivered to your seat. Will definitely do again.

for me, I think VOX Cinemas in City Centre Mirdif is the best, I feel so comfortable there no traffic, tickets easily taken and the popcorn and drinks is so fresh. Also the screens is just very clear and high quality.

As the title says, no cinema in the UK and Europe even come close to the quality and service in the reel cinema in the Dubai Mall. Firstly it is like a little take away restaurant, chicken strips, potato wedges, hot and fresh caramel popcorn,...More

Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa,
the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city

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

I think, prices start from 20AED. I paid 60AED per ticket for 3Dmovie in September. It included 3D glasses as well.
