Cinema snacks. Duh.

No cinema experience is ever complete without some snacks, even if you are guaranteed to polish them all off before the movie even starts. For this special game day experience, Roxy is offering an exclusive Game Day combo, featuring a choice of chicken or beef hotdog, or even a vegan option of Impossible plant-based sausage. Throw in some fries, popcorn and a soft beverage, for Dhs75 per person.

All the typical Roxy comforts are already part of the mix, with the plush reclining seats, and a variety of food options such as popcorn, nachos, hotdogs and more. For Roxy XTREME guests, there’s an even option for complimentary parking. All the luxuries and more.
