Abu Dhabi's Cinema Space is hosting two new film screenings on Netflix Party

We’ve all been making the most of the many virtual socialising apps out there as we self-isolate due to the current global pandemic: from participating in pub quizzes via zoom to watching virtual gigs on on Instagram Live, there has been plenty to keep us entertained. However, Netflix Party is a clear favourite among movie-lovers.

The new feature was introduced by the streaming app in March to allow film buffs around the world to host virtual movie nights while practicing social distancing. And since cinemas are currently closed, Abu Dhabi’s Cinema Space has been making the most of the platform to host special viewing parties of their own.

Last week, the cinema hosted 2019 animation I Lost My Body via Netflix Party for those in the capital to enjoy at home. Now, it has announced two new viewings, with one taking place this weekend, while the other is scheduled for early next week.

To watch family-friendly ‘90s classic Hook starring Robin Williams as Peter Pan and Dustin Hoffman as Captain Hook!, tune in at 4pm on Saturday April. 4 Then on Monday April 7, tune in at 7.30pm for a showing of OKJA by Oscar-winning South Korean director, Bong Joon-ho.

If you want to take part, all you have to do is RSVP to each screening on cinemaspace-abudhabi.splashthat.com/ and make sure you have installed Netflix Party on your laptop or desktop computer by downloading the Netflix Party extension on Google Chrome.

We’ll see you there!
Free. Sat Apr 4, 4pm; Mon Apr 7, 7.30pm. cinemaspace-abudhabi.splashthat.com
