Only in Dubai – At this luxury movie hall, popcorn and hot dogs make way for gourmet Michelin-starred meals.

VOX cinema in the UAE has always had fine taste. Its Theatre by Rhodes is example of this finesse. Keeping in line with this lineage of offering the best to movie-goers and luxury enthusiasts, VOX now brings a modern Japanese treat by signing up with renowned Michelin star chef Akira Back.

The Korean-born Las Vegas-based chef is well known for his signature style of Asian cuisine with a ‘US flair’ including the sazzy sounding tuna pizza and Wagyu tacos.

This month, a specially crafted menu will be available in UAE cinemas, and is expected to spread to other places in the region later this year, including Bahrain, Qatar and Kuwait.

This, with the luxurious offering of the THEATRE’s reclining leather seats, plush blankets and pillows and audio-visual technology making the experience ‘out of this world’ is just the kind of treat some may need every once in a while to escape the harshness of the realities of the world …

Currently, UAE residents can enjoy this treat in the following locations – Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Mirdif and Nakheel Mall in Dubai and Al Jimi Mall, Nation Towers, The Galleria Al Maryah Island and Yas Mall in Abu Dhabi.
