Join us for a unique iftar + film experience this Ramadan with CINEMAJLIS!

From May 10th, Cinema Akil and Project Chaiwala are transforming the cinema into a dining majlis serving casual, family-style South Asian cuisine and screening award-winning Arab films throughout the holy month.

Cinemajlis will also host games, talks, as well as 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, screening at 9pm and 11pm on weekdays as well as pre-iftar screenings on weekends.

The program will also include a special series of shorts screening commemorating Nakbah Day on 15 May in collaboration with Reel Palestine film festival, alongside the UAE release of NAILA AND THE UPRISING, a documentary film by Julia Bacha which first screened during Reel Palestine in January.

The iftar + film package is AED 200 and is only applicable for the 9 PM film slot. To book the package choose the film you want to watch, click on the poster and make sure to select the 9 PM slot to buy the iftar + film option. See you at our majlis!
