Around 10 screens here, several upstairs with their own snack bars. We were in 'Platinum 9' hall. Large, comfortable seats with wide armrests. Air conditioning at a sensible level. Cleaning staff in the moment the film finished. They started playing the wrong film, but changed it immediately we informed them.

The new platinum cinemas are an updated version of an ordinary cinema so do not be fooled by a bit of leather. Strangely, their increased 'level' does not appear to include furnishing the toilet facilities with toilet paper. 'I'm just going there now' is no excuse when three hours before there was none either. Neither was there any manager present.... More

The Bawadi mall in Al Ain is our preferred mall to visit and just walk around. They have many nice stores and a large food court. The Bawadi Mall is joined with the Ayla Bawadi Hotel. Taxis to and from Al Ain proper usually run around 20 to 24 AED. Taxis are easy to locate goimg and coming. There is... More

I don't like watching movies at Bawadi Mall: the theaters are so small, prices are very high and snacks are too expensive. I therefore visit Grand Cinemas once in a blue moon. I prefer Al Foah Mall Oscar Cinemas instead. It's quieter and a relaxed, family atmosphere is felt.

I have just returned from attempting to watch the final episode of The Hobbit. To my left the local lit his pipe twice, there was a constant barrage of mobile phone ringtones and answered conversations, none of which appeared to be able to be conducted in a whisper. Others walked in and out crossing in front of those there to... More

Good cinemas but take something warm as the air-conditioning can be quite low. Also, if it is too loud you can request the speakers be toned down a bit. Nice seats and big screens in all the theatres. Inexpensive at 30 dirhams for most shows.

The Bawadi Mall has everything as styled on a US Mall. Great selection of outlets including named brands. Large Carrefour supermarket, huge choice of food outlets and an indoor amusement area complete with indoor roller coaster and educational crèche area to cater for a kids of all ages. Outside the Mall there are a range of "local" outlets for rugs... More

I quote this review by one of your readers "Go and catch the early showings, there are no locals, no kids, and it is quiet and enjoyable.". I find it very offensive, uncalled for, dragatory, and frankly racist againt the so called "locals" in their own home. I have been th cinemas in all over the Emirtares and yes the... More

The cinema has very comfortable seats and have good snacks at the bars. The screen is big and is comparable to other good Cinemas in Dubai or Abu Dhabi
