The movie theatre chain Roxy Cinemas in the Dubai Hills Mall is installing what it says is the Middle East’s biggest ever cinema screen. The company says the screen measures 423 square meters, which is twice the size of a tennis court.
“The 15-screen Roxy Cinemas multiplex at Dubai Hills Mall will redefine the cinema-going experience for the UAE audiences with new levels of luxury across all our screens,” said Fernando Eiroa, CEO at Dubai Holding Entertainment, which operates Roxy Cinemas.
He added, “Roxy Xtreme sets a new benchmark for cinemas in Dubai and the wider region as the huge screen provides an unforgettable experience for all types of movie lovers.”
When it opens on August 31, the Roxy Xtreme auditorium will feature 382 premium reclining seats across three tiers: Standard, Premium and Director’s Boxes.
The three Director’s Boxes are suites perched above the auditorium, each with 12 luxurious seats.
Of the 15 screens at the multiplex, seven are in Platinum theatres, available to movie lovers starting in October; seven are in Standard theatres, and one is the Roxy Xtreme theatre with a screen measuring 28 by 15.1 meters.
