History of outdoor cinema experience in Qatar

In this region of the world, movies shown outside of traditional theatres are nothing new. To stay up with the most recent advances, the idea was then introduced to Qatar and other Middle-Eastern nations. Aspire opened the nation’s first drive-in theatre in the fourth quarter of 2017, complete with an open theatre that can fit 80 automobiles and plenty of food and refreshments on carts. Following this, efforts continued with projects like HawaScene, the Doha Film Institute’s outdoor pop-up film screenings during each Ajyal Youth Film Festival, and Cinema Under the Stars, which presented Oscar-winner Coco at the Museum of Islamic Art.
