And it involves eating gourmet food. Thankyou, Reel...
This luxury DXB cinema is changing the way we watch films

Remember the days of stale popcorn, worryingly bright frozen-ice drinks and a sad-looking selection of pick‘n’mix at the cinema? Yeah, us too.

Fast forward to modern-day Dubai life and we’re being spoiled with gourmet dining far beyond the standard cinema selection. Let us tell you more: Reel Cinemas has launched the region’s first dine-in cinema at Jebel Ali, marking a partnership with international celebrity restaurateur, Guy Fieri. And it's licensed. 

With over 100 seats of indoor and outdoor dining, film and food lovers can devour his signature American flavours - from gourmet burgers and hotdogs to cookies and Karak tea - ahead of enjoying the latest blockbusters on the big screen. The four screens also have a dine-in option at your cinema seat. Game changing, no?

Meanwhile, Reel Cinemas - the largest flagship laser cineplex in the world - has future plans to open Reel Cinemas in the Al Ghurair Centre early next year and one in the Rove Downtown hotel later this year. This is a brand-new concept involving being the first hotel cinema in the UAE. Very cool. 

So bring a hotdog to accompany you if no one else will willingly see Mamma Mia 2: Here We Go Again at the weekend. (For the record, it’s amazing).

Gourmet food in a cinema? That's a blockbuster hit if ever we saw one. 

See for more information.
