New drive-in cinema to open on Abu Dhabi's Yas Marina Circuit

ABU DHABI, July 1, 2020

Movie fans in Abu Dhabi will soon be able to watch a selection of the best films from a variety of genres from the comfort of their own car on a massive LED screen as Yas Island launches the Yas Drive In Cinema, in partnership with Reel Cinemas, the world-class cinema experience, and Brag at Yas Marina Circuit, Yas Island.
Yas Island presents the Yas Drive In Cinema, which will provide visitors with an opportunity to sit back, relax and watch a movie without even having to leave your car, while enjoying a full cinematic experience in a safe, purpose-built venue.
Launching on July 9, movies will be beamed on a giant screen throughout the weekend, with a selection of carefully selected, fan-favourite movies spanning a multitude of genres.
Film fans will be able to enjoy a fantastic night out in unique surroundings as Yas Marina Circuit provides a completely new concept in Abu Dhabi, with movie soundtracks being played through a dedicated radio channel for visitors’ car stereos.
Of course, no trip to the cinema is complete without the option to snack on a selection of treats, and visitors attending the Yas Drive In Cinema won’t need to worry as popcorn, soft drinks, water and chocolate will be included in the ticket price and additional F&B can also be ordered, and subsequently delivered directly to your car, by the venue’s dedicated team of staff.
With the health and safety of both staff and customers of paramount importance, a number of measures have been implemented in accordance with Government directives to ensure the health and well-being of everybody inside the venue, including a 65-car limit to abide by the social distancing regulations, temperature checking with hand-held devices for all guests on arrival and the availability of PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) should it be required.
As an added safety precaution, prayer rooms, along with shower and locker facilities, will not be available at any time, while every effort has been made to ensure the customer experience is as contactless as possible, right from the initial online purchase of tickets to departing the venue at the conclusion of the movie.
Guests will also be required to wear facemasks if windows are lowered to speak to event staff, and when leaving their vehicles at any point throughout the event.
Restrooms will be available onsite and customers attending should be aware that additional payments are cashless.
Doors will open at 7pm and films will begin from 8pm each day, with entrance to the Drive In Cinema via the East Gate.
On the opening night, viewers can look forward to watching Mad Max Fury Road, followed by Joker and Crazy Rich Asians on July 10 and 11 respectively. A week later, it’s Gravity on July 16, Ready Player One on July 17 and A Star is Born on July 18.
Visit for more information and ticket purchases, with tickets scheduled to go on sale on Thursday 2nd July.
The Yas Drive In Cinema is produced by Brag, who are responsible for some of the UAE’s most memorable community events such as Beach Canteen, Sole DXB, The Pointe Concerts, Club Social, Wasla, Dubai Fitness Challenge and many more. - TradeArabia News Service
