Families of four will get great savings on cinema tickets this spring break, just in time for all of those fantastic new releases. Visit any Novo Cinema Sundays to Wednesdays and get a free ticket for every three you buy.
So, if you were planning on watching Captain Marvel, Dumbo or any other big screen hit anytime from now until April 23 with the tribe, you’re in luck. Also, if you’re in the mood for a bit of a different movie snack (many moviegoers would argue that the best part of a trip to the cinema is the mountains of popcorn), you may want to head to Novo Dubai Festival City Mall.
For only Dhs7.50, you can get frozen popcorn. Yes, scientists have managed to create a tasty twist by deep freezing the kernels using liquid nitrogen, causing a “sensory explosion” in the process. The steaming popcorn gives off clouds of vapour when chewed and comes in two delicious flavours – salted and caramel.
The cinema reassures us it’s 100 percent safe to eat and is made by trained professionals from “food-grade liquid nitrogen”. The twist is added to the confection right before it is served as a “nitro shot”, flash freezing the popcorn in a matter of seconds and intensifying the flavour. We’re always up for trying new snacks – especially when they’re as futuristic as this.
Plus, with a spring break ticket offer, it seems like we'll be going to the movies more often to catch those new big screen hits.
