I have a few points in my review for Reel Cinemas.. first of all, after I visited here twice in the beginning of my Dubai adventure, I swore to never come back because the crowded movie theater was filled with rude and obnoxious people either talking loudly to each other or on their phone - when I was watching Harry Potter 7, the woman next to me answered her ringing phone, and then while she was talking, her SECOND phone went off and she answered that as well! Unbelievable. The staff should do more to monitor these disturbances as it ruins the overall cinema-going experience.

I came back recently to watch X-Men: Days of Future Past with a friend, on a Saturday no less. I was apprehensive due to my previous experiences. I was surprised the full theater this time was not nearly as noisy - there was a child crying but eventually the parent took him outside to calm him down.

The last time I visited, I booked platinum suites for Maleficent because it was opening weekend and we knew the regular theater would be packed. It was a really great experience overall - the seats were super comfy, and the food was good, however, I was disappointed that at the high price, not even a drink or bag of popcorn was included. They could at least include something in a ticket price that is more than double than the regular price.

Very good screens and chairs, and clean...unlike other cinemas when you walk in you smell feet:-(
and i compared the movies they have with other cinemas, they have more variety, i think they have some exclusivity to show some movies which is great.

i would love ot go there every time i see a good movie to watch BUT unfortunately i am not happy with the kids policy as many movies i went to, there is a crying kid...at least the timing, make certain timing for those who want to bring kids. and one more thing, they should be more strict with the SILENT phone policy as many times i encountered locals talking on the phone as if the theatre was a coffee shop.

when we have the saudi visitors, i would recommend the management to have their staff walking around and guiding ppl to how to chose a movie as i noticed that SAUDI's in particular start to think which movie to watch when its their turn to purchase the ticket and they usually take forever.

Reel Cinema is great place, with ample space and comfortable seating. The theater remains clean and comfortable. This surely offers you among the best theater experience in U.A.E. Quite huge.

DONT DO FRIDAYS HERE!!! Its a complete!! Nightmare. The place is big, but holly crap if your not prepared for a Bombay type experience. TONS of people, pushing shoving, no-one knows how to work the self-service machines and too many people in the theatre bringing in children or talking on their cellphones. I know its cultural differences but *$^(#!!!! Some people need a bigger sign or something!!!

Positives: A large and always clean cinema. Good seats with ample leg room. Negatives: Same old blockbuster selection like everywhere in Dubai.

I come here probably 2 times a week, and I only have one thing to say to everyone who goes here.....leave your young kids at home!!!! Do not bring your crying babies into the cinema!!!!! You ruin everything!! Every single time I come to watch a movie, there is some screaming baby or a kid playing on an I-Pad, it's ridiculous! I need to find another place(if possible), to watch a movie in peace and quiet. I really someone from Reel Cinemas reads my post and does something to change this as I am a frequent customer to this establishment. Fix this problem before you lose more customers than me.

Yea it is one of the best cinemas, but i got one problem with this 'best cinema'. I think its just me or probably other people too, but it is bloody huge! You can't just walk into the theatre after having purchased your ticket, sometimes you gotta go two floors up! As i said earlier, its just me probably. But the quality is better in REEL and seats are more comfortable, ya dig? ;) Expensive than other cinemas by 5dhs!

One of the best cinemas to go to. The place is always clean and the seats are very spacious. They also host most of the premieres so that just shows how brilliant they are. I had watched the last Harry Potter 3D movie here with my kids and it felt amazing. The 3D was soo clear and the glasses didnt make my eyes hurt even though the movie was nearly 2 hours long. Reel Cinemas is always one of the best places to watch movies. However, do note that they have recently hiked up their prices.

Watched Colombiana - terrible movie. The Reel food concessions sometimes burn their caramel flavoured popcorn so you should always ask for a sample to try first to avoid dissapointment.
