Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    There's a safety precautions where we had to wait in line inside the cinema but there's no social distancing whenever the people are lining up.

    Inside the cinema. Two seats apart are implemented but I don't know if you can go as much as four people.

    Overall. It was a nice experience inside but not the preparation outside.

    My favourite Cinema in Dubai

    Multi chorus choices of movies all the time, but sometimes they decide to stop a movie in a very short time...

    Went to see dr strange when we was in holiday as we didn't want spoilers great seats very comfy great cinema fantastic choice of food but no sweet plain popcorn.

    The only downside for me was people sat on there phone in the cinema.

    First time trying the Theatre by Rhodes experience at VOX cinemas (Mall of the Emirates). We opted for the standard seat, which was still 168AED (approximately £37). Slightly disappointed that you don’t even get a drink or snack free when paying this price, but overall it was a pleasant experience. All staff that served us were friendly and polite.

    Would definitely do it again and recommend to others. Offering customers a complimentary refreshment or snack would improve the overall experience, but nonetheless it was still good.

    Watched the new James Bond movie here as we couldn’t wait to watch it back home. The ticket prices were cheap, particularly with the entertainer app. The coke slush was much needed in the heat! The popcorn portion sizes were way too much but they tasted amazing. Comfortable seating. Social distances due to covid.

    I visited Vox cinema at Deira city Center shopping mall.
    It was a lovely experience. There were a number of people there but queues were not long. We decided to use the self service portal which was intuitive and easy to use. We were able to choose our seat using the self service portal and had the option to purchase snacks/popcorn.
    The usual snacks were available but we decided against snacks so cannot comment on the quality. The film was shown on a large screen, great volume and the seats were comfortable and well sized. All in all, a nice experience. I only wish the tickets were a bit cheaper as I found it a little pricey when converted to USD but it is on par with other cinema prices in Dubai.

    I little bit more expensive that a standard movie theater but the seat are more confortable, then it is worth it. Doesn’t had a good experience with the food as we were waiting long time at the counter and while having the meal the burger was cold and the fries extremely salty. Definitely need a better supervision/management.

    Though most theme parks have adventure rides, here you do have rides but not adventurous. Hence seniors can enjoy. Shows are happening at different locations and with limited entry and hence if you travel with group, you get splitted. Some shows start when other shows are on the midway. So you are definitely bound to lose one or more shows. The park is very small but to enjoy the shows and rides, it will take 6-8hours. i bet those who have visited Ramoji studio in Hyderabad, this is just a miniature.

    Vox Cinemas have great theatres and wonderful sound systems. But low quality good and beverage menu compared to other cinemas in dubai. They should either improve it or let us bring in our own F&B from outside.

    It was a amazing experience to watch a movie in Mercato Mall cinema. Usually you can find 3 or more options of movies including one Hindi. Very neat and good environment as well as the mall is also very beautiful not much crowded. The whole experience was amazing love to go again.

    I really enjoyed the extra attention and service that was given. After paying for our IMAX tickets, we were loaded up with "extras". The concession stand was a little slow, however after heading to our theater we realized there was another concession stand available near the IMAX suites.The bathrooms were clean, the 4D motion seats were a great touch to the action movie we saw (Avengers) and the popcorn was good. My only other complaint would have to be the popcorn chicken and fries that are advertised, they look nothing like the picture on the menu. They were significantly smaller and would be more suitable for a young child. Overall, the experience was good and I would visit again.

    Went for a PG13 movie and kids around 5 years old were inside the theatre. The kids were not feeling confortable with the movie content and start to be very annoying. It is not the first time I have experience it. Food is good,

    We went to watch a film here and the cinema was good and had nice comfortable seats. It is next to the food court in Festival city mall.
