Cinemas of Dubai are reflections of the city's grand extravagance, much more than mere halls where one enjoys the latest block-buster. Here are the top 05, offering more than a mere movie experience.


The Grand Metroplex

This cinema is loved as one of the best cinemas in Dubai, exuding loads of character. Enjoy a typical indie feel, as the small yet cosy room's offer, exceedingly comfy seats to recline in, as you relish the entertainment on the silver screen. Order a hot dog at this cinema and it will be served to you on a plate, with a side of hot-hot fries. Life does not get any better than a movie experience at the Grand Metroplex, which is only 14 minutes from Ascott Park Place Dubai. Oh and not to be forgotten is the in-house shisha café, where you can stop over to enjoy a meal, shisha and discussion of the movie. Ideal for business travellers to relax after a day of meetings, the cinema is easy to reach from the executive apartments, Dubai offers the modern traveller.

Enjoy the most realistic 3D movies at this cinema, as the 66 foot wide screen engulfs and draws you into the world of movies. Images seem to jump out at you, capturing your attention, mesmerizing, shocking and enthralling at the same time. Check out the website or call the hotline for a schedule of what is playing at the Extreme Screen, during your time in Dubai, and you can plan a leisurely trip to the cinema from your Dubai apartment.


The Picture house at Reel Cinemas

This is Dubai's first mainstream, multiplex art-house type cinema. This cinema is known to screen movies which do not usually run at the regular cinemas in town.

On offer are burgers, pizza, nachos covered in loads of thick sauces, and lots of other piping hot bites ready to tantalize and lull you into a state of total relaxation.


Dive In Movies

That's right folks! 'dive-in' not drive in. The concept is quite welcome, as a respite from the desert heat. Head over to the Emirates Hills and you can get on an inflatable chair to watch a movie from the middle of the pool. Plenty of munchies are on offer to keep you happy, as you enjoy a lazy float and the latest blockbuster on the screen.
