Vox Cinemas brings 'distraction-free' screenings to Abu Dhabi

No phones, no late arrivals and absolutely no talking

After a successful trial in Dubai, Vox Cinemas is bringing its ‘distraction-free’ screenings to Abu Dhabi.

Of course, in an ideal world, all cinema screenings would be distraction-free, but it doesn’t always go that way, so Vox has decided to give the serious film goers the chance to enjoy movies in the capital without the interruption of people talking or answering their phones.

The screenings launched at Vox Cinemas in Mall of the Emirates back in August and went down well with film lovers. Now, Vox Cinemas in Nation Towers will be offering the screenings, and the same rules apply.

All phones must be switched to silent for distraction-free showings, and anyone who arrives late will not be allowed in. Also, there is absolutely no talking – anyone found chatting will be asked to leave.

The distraction-free screenings will all be a strictly 18+ experience, regardless of the film’s rating.

Ad Astra and The Informer are currently being shown during distraction-free screenings, while from next week, you will be able to see Joker, Jexi and Rambo: Last Blood.

When making the announcement earlier this year, Vox Cinemas said: “Distraction-free screenings are an express commitment between cinemagoers and Vox Cinemas in creating the distraction-free environment. It will be enforced by the moviegoers themselves who have signed up to and selected this initiative."

All distraction-free screenings are clearly marked on the Vox Cinemas Nation Towers timetable. More information can be found at uae.voxcinemas.com
