The season kicks off with Bohemian Rhapsody, and tickets are now on sale…

After a summer spent checking out some of Dubai’s best indoor cinema experiences, we’re excited to be heading outdoors to catch a film this winter. And we don’t have long to wait, as the Urban Outdoor Cinema has announced it’s returning to the Habtoor Grand in Dubai Marina next month.

From Saturday October 12, Urban Entertainment will be putting on three films a week at their cosy outdoor cinema on the lawn of the Habtoor Grand, running every Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

So, what’s on the schedule?

It kicks off on Saturday October 12 with the smash hit Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, followed by Avengers: Endgame on October 13 and Top Gun on October 14.

The following week, the outdoor cinema will show A Star is Born, The Goonies and Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.

A Halloween special will see screenings of The Shining on October 26, Beetlejuice on October 27 and The Lost Boys on October 28, as well as a one-off kids Halloween special on October 31.

Into November, the Urban Outdoor Cinema will show classics including Back To The Future, Pretty Woman, Grease, The Breakfast Club and Notting Hill.

The December schedule features highlights such as Dirty Dancing, The Notebook and Clueless, before a weekend-long Christmas special takes place on December 21, 22 and 23 showing Home Alone, Love Actually and Elf. 

Tickets are priced at Dhs75 for the film, but there’s also waiter service on hand where you can order a selection of all the usual cinema snacks as well as pizzas and tapas. Drinks on offer include soft drinks as well as wines and beers.

See you by the popcorn…
