Drive-in time
There’s nothing quite as nostalgic as a drive-in movie theatre. Here’s where to enjoy them across the UAE

Back in the day, you’d pull into a grassy lawn, park your ‘57 Chevy Bel Air convertible, and, if you were lucky enough to have an in-car radio at the time, hurry to dial into the movie audio’s radiofrequency. But these days, the experience has been ratcheted up a notch. Drive-in movie theatres – especially in the UAE – have high-quality sound and film equipment, electric car charging stations, and gourmet food on offer.
