Nakheel is partnering with Reel Cinemas for a five-screen luxury movie and entertainment centre at The Pointe, a new waterfront dining and leisure destination under construction on Dubai's Palm Jumeirah.

Reel Cinemas at The Pointe will be the first of its kind in the region, featuring a movie theatre within a restaurant, Nakheel said in a statement.

Sister publication Arabian Business reported that The Pointe will be based at the tip of Palm Jumeirah across the bay from Atlantis The Palm, and feature fountain shows, a 1.5 km promenade and nearly 150 restaurants and retail outlets.
