If you've ever wanted to take the theme of Frozen more literally, now's your chance.

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.

The Snow Cinema will take place from Friday, December 11 until the end of February, giving guests plenty of time to enjoy festive films while cosying up with a hot chocolate.

There will be screenings of family-friendly favourites such as The Grinch, Frozen 2 or Daddy’s Home 2, which will be shown daily at 10am, 1pm, 4pm and 7pm. Those wanting to catch new releases can opt for nightly screenings, which will be showcasing blockbusters including Knives Out and The Call of the Wild.

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 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.

Tickets will be on sale from Tuesday, December 1, with prices starting from Dh100 per person, which includes a signature hot chocolate, popcorn and bottle of water. For a more premium experience, guests can book the VIP Chalet, which costs Dh800 for four people and includes a two-course meal from North 28, a hand warmer, gloves and beanie, as well as hot chocolates, popcorn and water.

All guests at Snow Cinema will receive rental clothing to keep them warm, including fleece gloves, socks, boots and a blanket, as well as wireless headphones and a dedicated locker.

The experience can be booked at skidxb.com
