To celebrate the all-new IMAX screen at its Dubai Festival City Mall cinema, Novo Cinemas hosted the first special screening in Dubai on 17th November 2016, of the highly-anticipated film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. It was a surreal experience for Buzzingtales to watch the movie at IMAX NOVO cinema in Festival City.
We were quizzing our teenager Birthday girl on how she would like to spend her Birthday. “Watching Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them with my friends of course,” she quickly retorted. “You can’t leave me behind,” pleaded her 9-year-old little brother. He made his case really strong when he said, “ It’s a Warner Bro movie based on J.K Rowling’s book. Everyone has to watch it!” Buzzingtales feels that just sums up everything about the movie. No matter what, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be a movie that everyone would love to catch a glimpse of. To make movie watching more special for my teenager NOVO cinema will be an obvious choice.
A luxury movie experience is not new to Dubai with the likes of Vox Cinemas’ Theatre by Rhodes. Earlier NOVO Cinema in Ibn Battuta Mall got a major face-lift. Now with NOVO 7 Star Cinema experience in Festival City Dubai moviegoers are spoilt for choice. The hall has a VIP lobby and the theater itself has stylish comfy sofa chairs with button controls, headrests and the option of additional pillows and blankets. Food can be ordered using mini iPads embedded in the seat
The choice of menu is exhaustive and there are even options for health freaks. Apart from the usual popcorn, chocolate, ice-cream and nachos, there were food items like quinoa salads, Middle Eastern Mezze, Chicken Breast and more. Watching a movie does not have to be a marriage with unhealthy food options like nachos or popcorn any more.
With the reasonable pricing of the food items on the menu, it really doesn’t make a dent in the pocket. With the luxury seats priced at Dhs 150 prices it’s a great option to Dubai’s VIP screening scene.
