During the Holy Month, Cinema Akil is being transformed into Cinemajlis, a dining majlis serving casual, family-style South Asian cuisine and screening award-winning Arab films. Cinemajlis will also host games, talks, and performances by open mic event Blank Space including oud-qanun-piano sibling trio De3bal and feel good singer-songwriter Haranero. Iftar will be served every night followed by films at 9pm and 11pm on weekdays as well as pre-iftar screenings on weekends. There’s limited seating, so book in advance on the website or via the Facebook page; tickets for the iftar plus film are AED 200, for the film alone AED 55.
There are showings at 9pm and 11pm, and thereafter the film is in rep with showings to 6 June.
