Rove Downtown in UAE set to open first hotel cinema in the city

Want to watch a movie in a cinema but would prefer not to go out of your hotel? That won’t be a problem in Rove Downtown which will soon have the city’s first cinema – inside a hotel.

Operated by Reel Cinemas – a leisure and entertainment subsidiary of Emaar Hospitality Group – Rove Downtown will have its own cinema with 49 seats. The movie theatre will screen both international and regional films, including sports matches and it’s already set to open in June this year.

Both UAE residents and hotel guests can enjoy the movie theatre for the price of DH75 and it already comes with a drink and popcorn, too!

“By pioneering innovative trends, we’re changing the face of entertainment”

Damien Latham, CEO of Emaar Entertainment, said: “Reel Cinemas is altering preconceptions of what movie-lovers expect from a cinema while diversifying the cinematic offering to suit every mood and occasion. By pioneering innovative trends, we’re changing the face of entertainment in the region with the new hotel-cinema concept. We are committed to delivering exceptional entertainment experiences and in taking the region’s cinema landscape to the next level.”

The hotel-cinema concept is expected to create a new dimension for Rove Downtown. It will bring convenience to the hotel’s guests and offer more entertainment options inside the spaces of the hotel. Furthermore, the concept will help position the hotel as the top choice for travellers who want to try something new. Or simply watch the latest flick.

Aside from the cinema, Rove Downtown will also cater to group events and gatherings, with the lobby lounge providing the perfect meeting area. Other facilities include a 24-gym, outdoor swimming pool, six event room options, and one restaurant — The Daily with an alfresco seating option.

“With the addition of the first hotel-cinema, Rove Downtown is raising the bar in its offerings”

Olivier Harnisch, CEO of Emaar Hospitality Group, said: “Rove Hotels is for the contemporary traveller who values culturally inspired settings in a vibrant social hub. As the first hotel under Rove Hotels, Rove Downtown has defined its niche in an exceptional location and effortless connectivity to business and leisure destinations in the city. With the addition of the first hotel-cinema, Rove Downtown is raising the bar in its offerings and delivering added-value for our guests.”
