What social distancing looks like at Dubai’s cinemas

Are you ready to head back to the movies?

A line of blockbuster films had been put on hold earlier this year, and as lockdown restrictions begin to ease in many parts of the world, Dubai's cinemas are getting ready to welcome customers back through their doors and into the theatres.

You may have the some hesitation about heading back into the great outdoors, but cinemas across the city are taking significant steps to make sure that your next visit to the movies is the safest it could possibly be.

But what precautions are they taking to make sure that you and everyone else who visits the cinema are safe? Capacity is being restricted and staggered, strict entry checks are being made, hand sanitising stations are everywhere and many more steps are being taken to keep you safe.

In the new episode of Life After Lockdown, we look at social distancing steps being taken in three of Dubai’s cinemas – Roxy in JBR The Beach, VOX Cinemas in Mall of the Emirates, and the drive-in movie theatre at Reel Cinemas The Dubai.
