Sharjah's first free drive-in cinema to launch in July

Hot on the heels of Dubai's first drive-in cinema to open in years, developer Arada is preparing to launch a similar venue Madar at Aljada, the recently opened family entertainment destination in Sharjah. With a scheduled opening date of Wednesday, 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.

Screenings at Movie Nights at Aljada will take place daily from 8pm and will be free to enter on a first come, first served 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.

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.

The cinema 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.

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 Insta.
