Debbie Stanford-Kristiansen, Chief Executive Officer of Novo Cinemas, said. “We are proud of how our team have rallied to open and deliver the clear guidelines provided by the Dubai authorities.  The well-being of our staff and customers is our utmost priority and we are confident to open and welcome everyone to our Dubai locations.  The team have shown an exceptionally positive attitude and are thrilled to welcome our customers back for A Great Time Out.”

“Behind the scenes no detail too large or too small has been overlooked and every effort has been taken, and more, to open our locations.  Diligent cleaning between show times has been tripled, with a thorough process including Dubai Municipality approved materials and process.  We thank our partners H&H who have taken this responsibility very seriously.”
