Outdoor cinema will accommodate more than 25 cars within premises, at AED150 a car
Azizi Developments, the UAE-based developer, is set to launch an outdoor drive-in cinema by the end of the year at its Riviera development, which is located within Mohammed bin Rashid City in Dubai, it has announced.
Once completed, the outdoor cinema would make Azizi Developments the first developer to establish such an attraction within a residential community, a statement stated. The cinema would bring an element of leisure and relaxation to the doorstep of urbanites and invite outside communities to enjoy the screens, it added.
Azizi said that the outdoor drive-in cinema would be able to accommodate more than 25 cars within its premises, for a fee of AE150 per car. Adhering to the social distancing norms, only two persons per car will be permitted during movie screenings.
The screenings will cover an array of genres of movies to ensure a wide spectrum of clientele can visit Riviera for entertainment, it stated.
Riviera is the company’s flagship community project in the heart of MBR City, Dubai, consisting of more than 16,000 residences spread across 71 mid-rise buildings that overlook a retail boulevard, a canal walk with artisan eateries and boutiques, and Les Jardins — a green social space.
“Our launching an outdoor cinema comes in an effort to bring communities together. Azizi Developments firmly believes in developing comprehensive lifestyles, rather than just homes,” said Nima Khojasteh, executive director (sales and marketing).
With its strategic location near the upcoming Meydan One Mall and the Meydan Racecourse — home of the Dubai World Cup — as well as major business, leisure and retail hubs, Riviera has been designed to introduce the French-Mediterranean lifestyle to Dubai, which is not merely about architectural art, but also about a certain ‘joie de vivre’ — a celebration of life, an exultation of spirit, the developer said.
“Real estate developers need to be innovative and add features to their offerings that encourage communal activities, bringing together residents and the community at large. Moreover, such activities will further push the ROI’s of properties and attract investors,” remarked Khojasteh.
“We are now in communication with different suppliers to finalise this exciting plan,” he concluded.
