Dr Seuss

The smash-hit stage show Seussical The Musical is coming to Abu Dhabi on October 25-26 and Dubai on October 28-30. Based on ever-popular Dr Seuss stories including The Cat In The Hat and Horton Hears A Who!, the musical is suitable for ages three and up.

The Little Prince

Mini movies

Follow the tale of the Little Girl (voiced by Mackenzie Foy) as she learns some vital life lessons in the first-ever animated adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic The Little Prince. Plucked from her everyday life with her mother (Rachel McAdams) and guided by her kind-hearted neighbour, the Aviator (Jeff Bridges), the Little Girl enters a magical world where the only limit is her own imagination. Catch a screening at Reel Cinemas in both 2D and 3D from October 22.

Take the kids for an after-school treat at family-favourite Carluccio’s. Every Monday from now until December, you’ll get a free kids’ meal with every adult main course (up to a maximum of two per bill) and plenty of crayons and colouring books to entertain the little ones while you dine.
