We’ve got a few luxury cinema experiences in Dubai, many of which offer high-end cinema food. But Nakheel are looking to take that concept to a new level, with a dine-in cinema that looks like a movie theatre within a restaurant.

According to Arabian Business, the project is a collaboration between Nakheel and Reel Cinemas, and the five-screen movie theatre will be at The Pointe on the Palm Jumeirah.

Omar Khoory, director, Nakheel Retail, said: "Our partnership with Reel Cinemas reflects our vision for The Pointe: to bring Palm Jumeirah alive with a vibrant destination that offers Dubai's residents and tourists the very best in dining and entertainment. It also further highlights our commitment to building a long term relationship with Reel Cinemas as we deliver more retail projects across Dubai."

The Pointe is an AED800 million waterfront leisure destination. The impressive project spans 1.4 million square feet with 150 restaurants, shops and entertainment outlets. There’s also a 1.5 kilometer promenade.

Maitha Al Dossari, CEO of Emaar Entertainment, the operator of Reel Cinemas, added: "We are further expanding the Reel Cinemas footprint through strategic partnerships. The Pointe at Palm Jumeirah by Nakheel is another outstanding location, where we will bring another innovative cinema experience that will delight all."Dine-i

No opening date has been revealed as of yet. Hotelier Middle East report that The Pointe was around 30 percent complete in May 2016, so it shouldn’t be too long until we can enjoy a fine-dining meal alongside the latest blockbuster.
