Outdoor Cinemas in Dubai - Perfect for Cooler Months

Written by Arpan Ghosh

There is no better time than now to enjoy the great outdoor cinemas in Dubai, provided you don’t wind up getting caught in a sudden downpour. As much as we love a good private screening room, this is a good excuse to head out to one of Dubai’s lovely open-air cinemas.

Part of the UAE’s popular VOX theater chain, the VOX Outdoor cinema shows all of the latest blockbusters in a cosy rooftop lounge, with seating options that include plush couches and beanbags. The movie ticket includes a food and beverage package, as well as blanket to stay warm during the chilly winter evenings.
