The New Look of Reel Cinemas at The Dubai Mall

The flagship 22-screen Reel Cinemas at The Dubai Mall offers a truly unparalleled movie experience earning the title, the largest Barco Flagship Laser Cineplex in the world. As the largest in the UAE, you can choose from an unmatched variety of blockbuster movies. Experience the next dimension of movie entertainment in awe-inspiring Dolby Atmos or indulge yourself in the most luxurious recliner seats at the Platinum Movie Suites. You can enjoy a glamorous movie experience with our new gourmet combos and a multitude of options to choose from our new partners.

Last night, I had the pleasure of experiencing the newly renovated first phase of Reel Cinemas. The new renovation includes a new booking experience (halving the usual time guests usually have to wait), Dolby Atmos sound system and laser projectors in all screens so no matter which movie you watch, the experience will be amazing plus a completely new look & feel.


I simply loved the airport-like look and feel of the newly renovated Reel Cinemas.



The self-booking kiosks were very user-friendly and quick taking the whole cinema experience to another level. The staff is very helpful and efficient, always ready to help and guide the guests with the booking experience. The variety of food and beverages that they offer is also very impressive. they have recently introduced a variety of gourmet hotdogs and colorful burgers which were a delight. They also have pop corns and Nachos along with slush and chocolates. Basically, they have something for everyone.

For food, we ordered the Masala Hotdog and the NYC Hotdog which were freshly prepared and tasted delicious. We also tried their nachos combo which came with a soft drink. They also have snacks where you can choose chocolates and biscuits.


You can book your movies and select your food and beverage at the self-booking kiosks and then go upstairs to collect your order and then go to your cinema hall. there are around 10 kiosks so there weren’t any long queues.


Reel Cinemas give movie-lovers the opportunity to experience the next dimension of entertainment with the Dolby Atmos experience.


Dolby Atmos transports you from an ordinary moment into an extraordinary experience with breathtaking, multidimensional sound that flows all around you.

Dolby Atmos is available at Screen 22 at Reel Cinemas, The Dubai Mall.

MX4D® Motion EFX Theatre, the newest evolution in the 4D cinema experience, provides a totally immersive environment, where you actually “feel” the action on the screen from the built-in motion and effects in the seats and theatre around you. Your MX4D® theatre seat will move in sync with the movie action and special EFX generators in the cinema, allowing you to “feel” the movie’s motion, jolts, pokes, wind, water, even scents.

A premium cinema experience requires something new, different, and visibly better. The result of Barco’s extensive research in the field of laser-illuminated projectors is emerging in premium cinema theaters across the world. The image displayed by Barco’s flagship laser projectors is simply stunning. From now on, you will see things you’ve never seen before when you go to the movies.


The Platinum Movie Suites offer the ultimate in cinema luxury. The experience begins in a private lounge fitted with marble service counters and the VIP treatment continues when you are ushered into your suite and sink into a leather reclining chair, conveniently equipped with a side table and button for personal butler service throughout the movie.

On the whole, I loved the new look and feel of Reel Cinemas Dubai Mall. First of all the location is very convenient. Secondly, the whole ambiance is perfect for families. The seats were very comfortable even in the standard cinemas. I would love to experience the Platinum cinema in near future as well.
