Dubai residents may now watch the latest international movies on the big screen across cinemas in the emirate as Dubai Economy has announced the reopening of both outdoor and indoor 2D cinemas.

Under the updated protocols and guidelines, all moviegoers will undergo contactless temperature screening and should wear masks all throughout the screening.

Those planning to watch the cinema should expect that they will not be seated together, as guidelines state that both horizontal and vertical social distancing will be applied. This means that 2 seats will be allocated per each customer, and that all seats in the aisles will be empty in each row. In addition, every alternate row will be empty as well.
