Outdoor cinemas are certainly a thing in Dubai at this time of year but here is one that we think might appeal to ShortList readers in particular.

#DXBExperiments Presents: The Cinema, which takes place in Le Royal Mériden Beach Resort and Spa, is an initiative from a certain famous Scottish beverages company and offers a range of interesting and innovative creations to accompany the films. Between October 30 and December 26, a total of 27 movies will be screened on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays, and they’re not the usual seen-them-a-million-times fodder of Grease and The Breakfast Club – think Withnail & I, The Big Lebowski and One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. It’s on a first come, first served basis, but you can book a pre-show meal at Maya, Geales, Zengo, Al Khaima or Rhodes Twenty10.

To help you make the most of this must-try experience, we’ve shortlisted eight films that we think are well-worth a watch…
