Cinema Akil


Cinema Akil is the first arthouse cinema in the GCC, located in Dubai’s Alserkal Avenue. Through its pop up editions, it brings critically-acclaimed films from around the world to audiences across the UAE. 

In September 2018, Cinema Akil opened its permanent home at Alserkal Avenue to continue its goal of education and awareness-building around film and the cinematic arts. To date, Cinema Akil has held over 60 nomadic cinema pop ups around the UAE in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah. Follow us into the dark.
