Yas Island’s Gateway Park South is hosting two weekends of outdoor movie screenings.

From Thursday, March 15 to Saturday, 17 and on Thursday, March 22 to Saturday, March 24 there will be a host of modern and classic Hollywood and Bollywood movies screened in the park.

Thursday will be family night (with two screenings), Friday is a ‘Back to the ’50s’ theme and Saturdays is Bollywood night.

Both Friday events will be interactive, immersive showings of Grease which will see a live cast from London’s West End bringing the film to life while it plays on the big screen.

There will also be a funfair, food stalls and other activities themed around the musical, starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John.

Tickets are free but registration is required. You can also upgrade to a VIP experience for Dhs100 (including priority bean bag seating,
two soft drinks and popcorn).

The first week’s Bollywood screening will be Dil Wale Dulhania Le Jayenge. There’s a chance to meet Arbaaz Khan if you upgrade your ticket to VIP for this showing, too (Dhs75 for all movies except Grease).

Free (VIP tickets Dhs75-100). Mar 15-17; 22-24, 4pm-11pm. Gateway Park South, Yas Island, www.yasmovies.ae.
