Time Out DXB Sep 11th 2018

Turn your holiday into a summer blockbuster with free films, VR headsets and popcorn

Bored of twiddling your thumbs in the airport while waiting to board a flight? Well now you can immerse yourself in a cinematic experience at Dubai International.

Grab the tablet, fire up the smartphone, connect to DXB’s super-fast, free wi-fi and let the quiet times roll, with an abundance of blockbusters beamed straight to your device.

DXB has teamed up with regional film content provider ICFLIX to allow you and the kids to stream the latest movies, completely free of charge.

Little ones will love hits like the five-time Oscar-winner Hugo or classics such as The Never Ending Story.

While big kids can enjoy a stellar cast in The Expendables, The Twilight Saga or Martin Scorsese’s critically acclaimed The Wolf of Wall Street.

There really is something for everyone on the service to keep you occupied. Flicks are available in three languages, too – Arabic, English and French.

Alternatively, head over to the Emirates Business Class or First Class lounges in Terminal 3 where you’ll find virtual reality headsets. The state-of-the-art devices have a fixed screen with a wide-angle field of view for 2D and 3D screenings in high definition. How cool is that?

The mix of content includes everything from movies and box sets to award-winning documentaries and 360° videos.

Movies include Alien: Covenant, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice and Boss Baby, as well as episodes of documentaries such as Cosmos and the BBC’s Planet Earth.

And for that real cinema experience, make sure you visit any of the Giraffe outlets across DXB or Tranzeet in Concourse B, Terminal 3, and grab some
delicious popcorn.

All you need to do is be careful to keep an eye on your boarding time…
