In order to keep up with the rest of the world, now there are many Dubai cinemas just everywhere in this metropolis.
Ever since the building of the shopping malls, the world of Multiplex Dubai cinemas has opened up in Dubai together with them. There are more and more multiplex movie theatres all around town, so if you would like to watch a movie, then definitely you will have no trouble doing it. Dubai cinemas are also famous as a free time activity.
Multiplex Dubai cinemas can be found in practically at all downtown shopping malls. The most famous ones include the CineStar Cinemas, which can be found both in Deira City Center and in the Mall of the Emirates, the Grand Mercato next to the Jumeirah Beach Hotel.

Each cinema features mainly Arabic speaking and American films. In order for the tourists to visit the cinema theatres, there are many films on their original languages with Arabic subtitle. This is the same for the television channels as well, out of which many represent American movies with Arabic subtitles.
Due to the several promotions and great quality movies, many films of well-known Arabic directors have published all around the world, which means that the Arabic cinema is becoming more and more famous and accepted all around the world. Many might not know the importance of Egyptian and Turkish movies in the Arabic and Muslim world of cinemas. Some decades ago, the Egyptian movies counted like the Hollywood Movies of the Arabic world. Egypt has released dozens of movies each year, representing great actors like Omar Sharif, the famous Egyptian actor, one of the very few from the stars of the Arabic world, who have become world famous.
Lately the Arabic cinema is going through a great change. Thanks to the new works of French-Algerian and Moroccan directors, more and more movies have becoming famous for their great story and quality presentation. The Moroccan Casa Negra had nominations to several awards a couple of years ago, and the French-Algerian film, the Prophet has won many quality awards. It was highly welcomed by the European cinema.
For this reason, Dubai has also decided to put more emphasis on the Arabic and Muslim cinema, with the presentation of several awards dedicated to the films of new coming directors, mainly from the Middle Eastern, Northern African region.
