Reel Cinemas, the premier cinemas managed by Emaar Retail LLC at The Dubai Mall and Dubai Marina Mall, has launched a loyalty programme, called Friends of Reel Privileges, assuring discounts on tickets, food & beverage offers and other attractive benefits for the members of Reel Cinemas’ Facebook group.
The first phase of the programme has been launched via the Reel Cinemas Facebook page (www.facebook.com/reelcinemas), and a loyalty card will soon be introduced in the second phase.
By simply becoming a ‘Friend’ of the Reel Cinemas Facebook group, movie lovers will be entitled to an array of offers including complimentary tickets on birthdays, free pillow & blanket at the Dubai Marina Mall on their birthday month, complimentary welcome drink at Platinum Movie Suites and many other benefits.
Reel Cinemas Facebook members are only required to download an icon on to their mobile phones or print a copy of the icon from the Facebook group page and present it to the cinemas Box Office to avail any of these benefits.
Gordon Kirk, General Manager of Reel Cinemas, said: “The new loyalty programme introduced at Reel Cinemas highlights our commitment to further elevate the entertainment experience offered at our cinemas. We have redefined the standards of cinema going in Dubai within a short span of time, and we are pushing our frontiers to bring added value to our patrons.”
The Reel Cinemas loyalty programme is the first of its kind that spans both the multiplexes with special screenings for loyalty club members. All members can benefit from an array of benefits including a 10 percent discount for every 10 tickets purchased, special monthly combos, exclusive opportunities to take part in special Facebook contests and special invitation to premieres.

Reel Cinemas has four Platinum Suites featuring private lounges, marble-clad service counters, signature designer furniture and ambient lighting.
