Abu Dhabi’s first IMAX cinema is opening at The Galleria Al Maryah Island

We all love going to the movies in Abu Dhabi, right?

The anticipation, the trailers, the popcorn, staring at people who are talking hoping you can somehow quiet them down telepathically. We’ve all been there.

If you go to the cinema as much as us then there’s good news, especially if you like seeing films screened using the latest tech.

VOX Cinemas has opened at The Galleria on Al Maryah Island and as well as being one of the largest cinema complexes in the region it’s also home to the capital’s first-ever IMAX screen.

That’s right, you can see the biggest films on the biggest screen in the emirate.

Opening on Thursday September 5, moviegoers can head to the newest lifestyle venue in the city to see a film.

Plus with THEATRE by Rhodes and all the snacks (did we mention popcorn?) we’re sure it will quickly become one of the go-to places to see a film in the city.

Got young kids in tow? VOX also has a kids’ cinema with a smaller room, brightly coloured seats and volume controls so that little ones don’t miss out either.

All this talk of going to the cinema has got us excited and with films like IT Chapter 2 and Once Upon A Time In Hollywood playing we’re already thinking about booking some tickets.

You can get the popcorn. Shhhh! It’s started
