7 top things to do in Dubai this week

It’s a fresh new week and it’s time to get planning. We bring you seven fun things to do in Dubai this week, from a new cinema ladies’ night, to money-saving dining deals. Enjoy.

Watch The Bodyguard on the beach
Dubai’s Zero Gravity has just revealed the next Hollywood blockbuster to hit the sandy shores of Dubai Marina as part of its Cinema on the Sand series and it’s probably favourite one yet – The Bodyguard. And no we’re not talking about the British thriller series that everyone was going on about last year – we’re talking about the 1992 romantic thriller film starring Kevin Costner and Whitney Houston. The movie boasts the best-selling soundtrack of all time including Whitney Houston’s ‘I Will Always Love You’. And we know you’ll be singing along on the beach.
