Whether you’re into action, romance, comedies or fantasy, everyone loves going to the movies.
Well, you’re in luck because Yas Movies in the Park is screening some of your favourite films al fresco, giving you a new movie-going experience.
Taking place from 15th to 17th and 22nd to 24th March, eight films will be shown on the big screen in the great outdoors at Yas Gateway Park for film fans. And with family flicks, classics and even a Bollywood hit, there’s something for everyone.
If you’re not already excited, here are six reasons why you should get your tickets now.
What can you say? It’s Grease, presented by Paramount Channel, a premium entertainment and storytelling channel. You probably know all the songs but we bet you’ve never had an immersive experience like this. Visitors can sign up for the Grease Lightning Challenge and change a car tyre to set the best time to win prizes, jump into an arcade racing competition at Thunder Road and sing along to live movie soundtrack performances, too. Plus, gents can visit the T-Bird barbers to get the perfect 50s quiff. For the main event, the film itself will be shown on the big screen with live dancing and entertainment from visiting West End performers. With screenings taking place on 16th and 23rd March, there are no excuses for missing out on the singalong.
See a Bollywood star
Bollywood takes over on 17th March with an evening packed full of activities, a screening and some star power, too. On the night, visitors can see Diwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, starring Shah Rukh Khan, as well as stand-up comedy from Salman Qureshi and a Bollywood dance performance from Dance with Nisha School. Finally, taking to the stage, Bollywood actor Arbaaz Khan will be answering your questions in a live Q&A where fans can find out more about the actor in person.
Upgrade your popcorn
Popcorn, it’s the perfect food for the cinema and we love it, but there are more food options for filmgoers at Movies in the Park. Some of the UAE’s best food trucks will be serving up grub for visitors providing food favourites as well as new dishes that you might just have to try out. Sounds delicious to us.
Become a VIP
Fancy being treated like the VIP you are? We hear you. Tickets can be upgraded for any of the film screenings, meaning you can have a stress-free experience. VIP ticket holders will get priority viewing, a guaranteed seat, popcorn and two drinks. VIP upgrades cost AED 75 or AED 100 for the Grease Immersive VIP Experience.
None other than cinematic classic Jurassic Park will be taking over to thrill and terrify children on 22nd March. The Academy Award-winning film will be shown in all it’s glory so all you have to do is nervously look over your shoulder to the surrounding park to make sure no uninvited Tyrannosaurus Rex crashes the party. What was that noise? Oh, I’m sure it was nothing…
And… It’s free
Yes, you read that right: You can attend Movies in the Park absolutely free. Pretty good, right? All you need to do is register for your ticket at yasmovies.ae and then grab a blanket and some chairs and head down to the venue. Oh, parking is free too, so that’s another bonus for families who are heading down to a screening. What more could you want?
