Popcorn, movies and the beach… sign us up immediately!

Outdoor cinemas are one of the best activities to enjoy during the cooler months in Dubai. Whether you’re looking for something different to do with your friends, or planning a cute date night, outdoor cinemas are a fab alternative.

World renowned luxe hotel, Nikki Beach Resort and Spa, has announced the launch of its own outdoor cinema, which takes place on the stunning pristine sandy beach. The cinema will run on the first Tuesday of each month during the winter, with the first edition launching at 8pm on Tuesday October 1.

To launch the new season of cinema, Nikki Beach will be screening 1976 British science fiction film “The Man Who Fell To Earth”. Starring David Bowie, the classic film is about a humanoid alien, called Thomas Jerome Newton, who visits Earth in a bid to take water back to his own planet.

On the night, Nikki Beach will have a range of drinks and snacks on offer for guests to enjoy during the film. There will be popcorn available in either salted or caramel variety, as well as loaded nachos with molten cheese. You’ll also be able to tuck into a cheese burger, vegan burger, quesadillas and hotdogs, all served with fries.

House spirits, wine, beer and cocktails will also all be on offer, with prices starting from Dhs35. Soft drinks are also available including water, soda and Red Bull. To end the night with something sweet, try their range of ice cream, or the gooey caramel brownie pot.

To enjoy the cinema, you’ll just need to spend a minimum of Dhs50 on food and drinks. After this week, film screenings will take place on Tuesday November 5 and Tuesday December 5. While we don’t have details of the upcoming films yet, we’ll let you know as soon as we hear.
