To be a part of the adventure of action, superhero or animated movies, you can opt for a thrilling 4D experience at Vox, Reel or Novo. These cinemas are fully customised to create a complete sensory experience.

For an even more intense experience, you can go to the IMAX laser cinema at Vox Mall of the Emirates or Novo at IMG World of Adventures (the largest IMAX screen in Dubai) and a few other locations.

Even better is Screen X at Reel Cinemas, Dubai Mall, which is a 270-degree cinema screen wrapped around the walls on both sides of the 170 seats, making you feel like you are an integral part of the movie.


If you are in the mood for some VIP treatment, luxury lounges and fine dining, then Vox Gold by Rhodes offers blankets, mocktails and a two-course meal by Michelin-starred Chef Gary Rhodes. Novo 7-star similarly offers special gourmet food, valet parking, luxury lounges and fully reclining leather seats while Reel Platinum Suites even has a butler service throughout the screening.

With a permanent location in Alserkal Avenue and varies pop up editions in Dubai and other emirates, Cinema Akil is for those with a penchant for arthouse films.


In the cooler months, you can watch movies under the stars at the Pyramids at Wafi or at Vox Outdoor (Galleria Mall and Aloft City Centre Deira).
