Reel Cinemas at Jebel Ali Recreation Club
Recently renovated Jebel Ali Recreation Club has come up with a brilliant concept by Reel Cinemas where people can dine and watch movies.

Movie-theatre giant Vox Cinemas has set the benchmark for film viewing by having comfy reclining seats with adjustable footrest along with an in-cinema waiter at your service on the press of a button, serving exclusive meals from restaurateur and Michelin star chef Gary Rhodes. Filmgoers can look out for this experience in Dubai at Mall of the Emirates in Dubai and in Abu Dhabi at Nation Towers and Yas Mall.
Bridging the gap between indie cinema to UAE film audiences, Cinema Akil hosts free screenings of films and documentaries from across the world. It’s the hub for parallel cinema, screening a diverse range of films that contribute to the arts and have storylines based on real cases and matters. Most screenings start at 9:30 pm.
