Listening Party, Dubai: A Cinema, Demolished

  • Gulf Photo Plus Dubai UAE (map)

Dubai! Join us for a listening party, cosponsored by Gulf Photo Plus, around our podcast episode, "A Cinema, Demolished". Entry is free, but space is limited so please RSVP to guarantee a seat.

We'll play the episode at 7:15pm.

This story is a small slice of Dubai's history, told through one building and the people it was important to.

When demolition began on the Plaza Cinema in 2015, something unusual happened; Dubai residents began visiting the site to collect mementos from the building’s rubble. The cinema was almost as old as the UAE itself – a place which many people held an emotional connection to. In A Cinema, Demolished, a story about a cinema that was much more than just a cinema.

Join us for a night of honest discussion about impermanence and urban memory in Dubai. Come with your thoughts, stories, or just come with a friend. We'll take care of the rest (including some light refreshments).
