Cinema Akil in Alserkal Avenue will be up and running on Friday night, June 12, with a 7pm showing of Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan's latest altered-reality travel comedy, The Trip To Greece.
When Odysseus left Troy it took him ten years to get back to his home in Ithaca. Steve and Rob have only six days on their own personal odyssey. On the way they argue about tragedy and comedy, astronomy and biology, myth, history, democracy and the meaning of life!
Book yourself a night at the cosy independent film theatre and embark on this remarkable odyssey with the renowned actors.
The art-house has announced that it has redesigned its space to offer a safe viewing experience with a reduced capacity of 30%, and seats have been rearranged to comply with social distancing measures ensuring a two-metre distance between patrons.
In accordance with UAE regulations, both visitors and staff will be required to wear a face mask at the cinema. Patrons will also have their temperatures checked before entering Alserkal Avenue. Patrons will have to purchase their tickets online to ensure minimal human contact. Rigorous disinfecting procedures will be administered every day, in addition to ensuring that sanitising stations are available across the facility.
After the re-opening the cinema will be showing one film per night from Tuesday to Saturday. In house street food and snack vendors Project Chaiwala will be open on the same days from 1 pm to 9 pm, offering your favourite bites and karak tea.
