Festival City Mall

Shopping, burger stop, cinema tickets, popcorn – trips to the mall can get EXPENSIVE. Step forward Dubai Festival City Mall and its free cinema. Did we mention that it’s outdoors, on a helipad?

Find the Camry Helipad Cinema overlooking Festival Bay, where it screens family-friendly films on the mall’s helipad every weekend from now until 14th April. Bagging your beanbag there comes with only one catch – provide any receipt of purchase from the mall.

On the 1st, 2nd and 3rd March watch sci-fi/space opera flick Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets. The following weekend there’s animated comedy Monster Family and the next confirmed film is the comedic tale of American socialite Florence Foster Jenkins. All movies screen at 8pm.

Off-screen the views are pretty stunning too, with totally Instagrammable sunsets, views over the skyline of Downtown Dubai and the Burj Khalifa. Sweet.

Since you’re there, other must-does for Festival City are a ride on the big wheel and watching fire, water and light show Imagine.
