Here at Savoir Flair, we’ll happily watch and rewatch Love Actually in order to debate the merits of Hugh Grant versus Colin Firth. We’ll sit through The Holiday because of its killer cast and cutesy storyline. We’ll cry through every single screening of It’s a Wonderful Life. And we’ll never, ever tire of Will Ferrell as Buddy Hobbs in Elf. But let’s face it: can any Christmas film even compete with Home Alone?

No.

Clearly, we’re not the only ones who think watching an eight-year-old troublemaker take on a pair of burglars is practically a tradition during the festive season as, everywhere we look, there seems to be an opportunity to rewatch Home Alone in Dubai – an outdoor cinema on the sand, an independent cinema frequented by the city’s creative types, and the comfort of your own home included. Here are all the details you’ll need.

'Cinema on the Sand' at Zero Gravity

Yes, we’re still horrified by that video, but the good news here is that ‘Cinema on the Sand’ is one of the better offerings at Zero Gravity – think: bean bags, cinema snacks, and views of the Arabian Gulf and city skyline. Tickets to the Home Alone screening on December 23rd are priced at AED 50, but you get AED 50 back in food and beverage vouchers. Win-win.

Urban Outdoor Cinema at Habtoor Grand Resort

Hosted by Urban Outdoor Cinema are must-see films like Pretty Woman, Love Actually, and Dirty Dancing, so there’s always a reason to make your way to Habtoor Grand Resort. Home Alone is next on the roster, screening on Christmas Eve. There will be plenty of menu options and adult beverages to choose from, with the JBR skyline in the backdrop serving as the proverbial cherry on top.

Cinema Akil at Alserkal Avenue

There’s something counter-intuitive about watching a childhood favorite like Home Alone in a cool, indie cinema like Cinema Akil – and we’re all for it. The movie will screen on December 26th at 7 p.m. Just be sure to get there a little early to fuel up at Project Chaiwala; the ‘Chilli Cheese Toast’ and ‘Sweet Potato Masala Fries’ make everything better.

Starz Play

To our horror, Home Alone hasn’t made it onto Netflix Middle East yet – enter: Starz Play. This Dubai-based streaming service provides access to hit films, original content, Disney productions, and more. It’s actually the sequel – Home Alone 2 – currently showing, so if you loved watching Kevin McCallister living it up at The Plaza Hotel, this one’s for you.

iTunes

When all else fails, you can rely on iTunes for your Home Alone fix – both the original and the sequel, in fact. You can rent it for AED 14.99 or splurge a little and buy it for AED 29.99. The only problem: how on earth does it have a rating of only 3.9?
