UAE-based developer, Arada is preparing to open a new drive-in cinema at Madar at Aljada, the recently opened family entertainment destination in Sharjah. With a scheduled opening date of July 1, Movie Nights at Aljada will showcase a wide range of films throughout the summer period and beyond, in a fun and secure environment. Located at the Muwaileh district in the heart of New Sharjah, Aljada is a master-planned destination.
The cinema experience is being launched in collaboration with Dubai-based Urban Entertainment, the company behind a number of outdoor cinemas in the UAE, and will strenuously adhere to all current and future guidelines with regard to safety and social distancing.
Screenings at Movie Nights at Aljada will take place on a daily basis from 8pm and will be free to enter on a first-come, first-serve basis. Visitors to the permanent cinema, which has a capacity of 150 vehicles, will be allocated specific parking spaces, depending on the size of their car, and will be able to access the sound of the movie via FM radio. The full schedule of films will be uploaded onto the Aljada website a few days before the launch date, as well as Aljada’s Facebook and Instagram social media channels.
Visitors will also be able to order directly from Zad at Aljada, the new food district featuring 17 different types of cuisine located only a few steps away from the cinema, from the comfort of their car. Meals will then be delivered to cars in a contactless and safe manner.
“Movie Nights at Aljada is a significant addition to the list of attractions on offer at Madar at Aljada, and it is also our way of thanking the Sharjah community for its strength and resilience during these exceptionally challenging times. We look forward to welcoming guests back to Aljada and providing them with a safe form of entertainment,” said Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, chairman, Arada.
