Movie nights at McGettigan's in Dubai

Watch movies in this JLT pub every week

Knowledge story, The Knowledge

Fed up with people talking when you’re trying to enjoy a movie? Now imagine trying to watch a film in the one place many go to for a natter – the pub. But before you scoff at the new weekly movie nights at McGettigan’s in JLT, we can tell you they’ll take place in complete silence – well, if you want them to. Using the same technology that keeps dancers striking conflicting poses at silent discos, the Irish pub is dishing out wireless headphones so guests can either tune in to the movie, or ignore it completely. In a smart move, Mr McGettigan is kicking off this snazzy trick with a screening of Christmas classic It’s a Wonderful Life at 8pm on Christmas Eve. See you there.
