Introducing your big fat Friday free film nights

Sharjah cinephiles, Movie Nights at Aljada means your weekend's sorted. You're welcome
Introducing your big fat Friday free film nights

My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002) is just one of the free screenings at Movie Nights at Aljada

Your weekend's just got better. Sharjah’s only drive-in cinema, Movie Nights at Aljada debuts back-to-back screenings every Friday night, starting on 4 September. Yep. That's this Friday(!!!) - before you ask. 

Having welcomed 10,000 visitors in just two months, the cinema is ready to keep up, bringing even more joy to our so-far dull months.

What's on the schedule? From kids cartoon favourite, The Queen’s Corgi and the sci-fi classic The Matrix and the cult 80s film Back to the Future to rom-com Sweet Home Alabama, the fisrt episode of the wizard world, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, beloved animated superhero film The Incredibles and '90s comedy thriller True Lies, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger - the double bills will basically include everything.

Movie Nights at Aljada

The best part? All movies at the drive-in cinema at Madar at Aljada, Muwaileh, Sharjah are free to enter on a first-come, first-served basis. And take a note: all movies start at 8pm. 

More than just watching films, you can also satisfy your cravings at Zad before showtime, with 17 different types of flavoursome offerings. Either visit the drive-thru prior to entering the cinema, or order your meal via the dedicated website. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy: your meal will be delivered directly to your car, safe and contactless. 

One more reason to dress up, add to Story and enjoy a sense of normalcy (inserting sassy pink jumper girl emoji, you know the one).
