Rhodes has five restaurants around the globe and he has won a constellation of Michelin stars.
Loved by royalty, prime ministers and presidents, in 2006 Chef Gary was honoured with an OBE, for services to the British culinary world.
He said in a statement: “Vox Theatre by Rhodes is an exciting new marriage and challenge that we hope to turn into a culinary taste that blends and compliments the movie experience Vox Cinemas has always been known to offer and now adding a new venture that I feel proud to be part of. Vox Theatre by Rhodes will create a ‘premiere’ of EAT classics for all, as well as new flavours to partner the main event - the movie.”
Chef Gary has a hand in every detail from “staff training to kitchen set up, cutlery design and menu preparations”.
The public can check out the new concept when it launches as part of the fresh Vox Cinemas development, in Majid Al Futtaim’s Mall of the Emirates extension this September.
“The new VOX Mall Of The Emirates cinema will be the largest cinema in the Middle East, featuring all of the world’s most innovative cinema concepts including an IMAX laser projection system (the first in the Middle East), the region’s largest 4DX cinema (exclusive to VOX Cinemas) and two VOX Kids cinemas, the only cinemas designed especially for the younger fans,” Cameron Mitchell, Chief Executive Officer at Majid Al Futtaim Cinemas – VOX Cinemas, said.
Cinema-goers will get exclusive lounge areas with stunning interior design and furnishings to interactive cinema seats and table service. As well as Mall of the Emirates, it will launch in Abu Dhabi at Yas Mall and Nation Towers.
