Urban Outdoor Cinema returns to Dubai with weekly blockbuster hits

Catch classic films The Greatest Showman, Notting Hill and more at the fully-licensed outdoor screen

As the weather starts to cool down, Dubai’s outdoor events start to heat up – especially if you’re a fan of watching movies on the grass with pint in hand.

Kicking off on Saturday October 20, the fully-licensed Urban Outdoor Cinema returns to the gardens of Habtoor Grand Resort, Autography Collection in Dubai Marina, which means movie fans can sit back and watch their favourite blockbuster classics in the cool outdoors.

For the rest of the year, film buffs can catch a movie every Saturday, Sunday and Monday at 7.30pm, with a different movie playing each night.

What to expect? First up is Hugh Jackman singing his heart out in The Greatest Showman on Saturday October 20, followed by Tom Cruise delving into “The Danger Zone” in Top Gun on Sunday October 21, and the incredibly charming Notting Hill on Monday October 22.

It’s the following week where things get a tad spooky, as the event will be putting on a series of horror flicks to celebrate Halloween.

Only coming out this year and creating a lot of buzz, film fans can look forward to A Quiet Place on Saturday October 27, while those who like a touch of comedy with their gore will enjoy Shaun of the Dead the following night.

Finishing off with a cult classic, the chilling The Lost Boys will be showing on Monday October 29.

Everything from Harry Potter to Star Wars will be showing down the line, so for a full list of what to look forward to, head over to www.urbanoutdoorcinema.com.

Setting up on the beach lawns gardens of Habtoor Grand Resort, Autograph Collection, the venue will have comfy seats and bean bags available for guests to lounge on.

The space will also have food and beverage service, so you can chill out on your bean bag while waiters deliver everything from pizzas to tapas, along with hops and grape.

You can nab yourself a spot for any of the shows for Dhs75, with tickets being available at the venue and over at urbanoutdoorcinema.com.

And that's not the only outdoor movie option in town, as VOX Cinemas recently opened its second OUTDOOR location at the Aloft Deira City Centre.

Looking for something a little more private? Reel Cinemas lets film fans watch their favourite blockbusters in their own private theatre, so you can laugh and cry as loud as you want.

In the meantime, we’ll be off to sing our hearts out in the front row of The Greatest Showman.
Dhs75 per person. Until Jan 28, 2019. 7pm onwards. Habtoor Grand Resort, Autograph Collection, Al Falea Street, www.urbanoutdoorcinema.com (122 365 4897).
