Dubai gets its first-ever boutique hotel cinema

The ticket price will include popcorn and a soft drink

1/4

Lights, camera, action! A Dubai hotel has launched its own boutique cinema, making it even more convenient to catch a quick movie.

The 49-seat screen at Rove Downtown will open later this year and boasts state-of-the-art technology.

The ticket price will include popcorn and a soft drink, with the cinema showing blockbuster titles as well as football and regional films.

Developer Emaar is promising “ornate charm” with stylised seating and a distinct inner-city vibe. Sounds good to us.

It’s all being run by Reel Cinemas, which has loads of well-established venues across Dubai, so it should be an A-list experience.

But the best thing of all is that you won’t need to leave your hotel to catch the latest blockbuster.

Emaar Entertainment chief executive Damien Latham said: “Reel Cinemas is altering preconceptions of what movie-lovers expect from a cinema while diversifying the cinematic offering to suit every mood and occasion.

“By pioneering innovative trends, we’re changing the face of entertainment in the region with the new hotel-cinema concept.

“We are committed to delivering exceptional entertainment experiences and in taking the region’s cinema landscape to the next level.”

Sounds good to us. We can’t wait until Rove and Reel roll out the red carpet.
