Dubai Moving Image Museum
This brand new ode to the history of the moving image features objects from MCN chairman Akram Mikna’s collection, accrued over more than 30 years, and charts the dawn of motion picture film – all the way through to modern cinema. The museum is also being offered as a unique party venue.
Dhs50 (adults), Dhs25 (kids), group and school rates available. MCN Hive, TECOM (04 421 6679).
From October, Dubai’s Eton Institute will be offering speak-dating language exchange sessions once again, open to all those who wish to learn a new tongue while teaching their own to someone else. The best bit? It’s entirely free. Eton Institute, Knowledge Village, www.eton.ac (800 3866).
