As the potential new venue for the Dubai film festival, entertainment is at the heart of this project. The lively mix of theatre, cinemas, restaurants and bars sits in an urban canyon that brings people in from the street. The experience is enhanced by the enclosed oasis, which is completely removed from the context of the surrounding developments.
