‘Frozen’ might be the name of a movie. But for Dubai residents, this is now an experience and feeling of watching a movie, literally! Yes, Ski Dubai is setting up a ‘Frozen’ theme for its visitors to watch movie inside.

Ski Dubai, the indoor ski resort at Mall of the Emirates, has teamed up with Vox Cinemas to launch a cinema on the icy slope, billed as the first experience of its kind in the region.

Visitors will also get a chance to visit Santa’s Grotto at the venue, which has recently been transformed into a winter wonderland. Meanwhile, the Snow Cinema will provide table service, so that cinemagoers can order snacks including gourmet popcorn (salt or caramel) and signature hot chocolate from the comfort of their seat.

Guests can also choose from North 28’s menu, which features dishes such as raclette, hotdogs and burgers, as well as festive desserts including mince pies.
