The screening list includes all-time festive faves…

Nothing beats curling up and getting cosy with a great movie at Christmas time during the winter season. For a unique experience, round up your loved ones and head to the Souk Madinat Jumeirah and catch a festive flick under the night sky.

To celebrate the Christmas season, Souk Madinat Jumeirah has covered the Souk amphitheatre with comfortable bean bags and will be screening festive movies until December 26. The movie begins at 7.30pm which is a perfect post-work activity with loved ones. It can get chilly, so make sure you dress warm.

The best news? It won’t cost you a single dirham as there’s no price for admission. However, seats will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, so make a beeline to the amphitheatre to book your spot the second you arrive.
