A handy primer for planning your next movie outing.
It’s summer time! Let’s escape the heat for a couple of hours within the cool comforts of one of Bahrain’s cinemas. Here’s a quick list of tips and tricks to help you make the most it.
What to Watch
New movies are generally released on Thursdays and there are a couple of websites that give you all the details you’re looking for, including movie genres, trailers, age restrictions, timings and plot synopses.
Booking in Advance
The cinema will definitely be overcrowded on weekends. To make sure you have the seats you want in the movie you want, it’s always better to book your tickets online. Then all you have to do is go to one of the counters at the cinema and pick up your tickets. No fuss, no muss!
The cinema can be a bit chilly, so to be on the safe side, make sure you have a cardigan or shawl with you to cover up in case you get cold.
Salted or sweet popcorn, nachos and soft-drinks are all standard fare that you can pick up before entering the movie. However, in some cinemas, you may have more options. City Centre has multiple kiosks on the way to the theatre with a medley of snacks ranging from candy bars and corn to frozen yogurt and more. At Saar cinema, you can order a hotdog or crepe and even have them brought to your seat while you’re watching the movie. Bonus points for service!
You just had to drink that extra-large Coke during trailers, and now you’re stuck halfway through the movie because you don’t want to miss anything. Well, that’s where RunPee comes in. It’s an ingenious app that tells you the best times to sneak in a quick bathroom break without missing the best scenes. It’ll even let you know what you missed anyway.
