UAE vampire

fans are set to be among the first to get their teeth into New Moon, the much anticipated next instalment of the popular Twilight series.

In a special showing, New Moon will play the world's largest outdoor movie screen at the SwissOpenAir Cinema on the opening night of its return to Dubai this month.

Starting with New Moon, SwissOpenAir Cinema will take place at the Media City Amphitheatre, and run every night from November 26 7 December, with doors opening at 7pm for dinner and drinks, and will run into the night

with special entertainment and DJ.

Farzin Samadian, CEO of SwissOpenAir Concept says that New Moon is set to be one of the biggest movies of the year which is why it was so important to secure it for the open air cinema's opening night.

Everyone is very excited about this movie and we are really proud to be one of the first locations in the world to screen it. We would like to thank Gulf Film for providing us with this great screening opportunity he said.

Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner reprise their roles as Bella Swan, Edward Cullen and Jacob Black. Academy Award-nominee Chris Weitz (The Golden Compass, About A Boy) is the director.

Also rejoining the movie are Ashley Greene as Alice, Peter Facinelli as Carlisle, Elizabeth Reaser as Esme, Kellan Lutz as Emmett, Nikki Reed as Rosalie, Jackson Rathbone as Jasper, Edi Gathegi as Laurent, Rachelle Lafevre as Victoria and Billy Burke as Charlie Swan.

In New Moon, Bella Swan is devastated by the abrupt departure of her vampire love Edward but her spirit is rekindled by her growing friendship with the irresistible Jacob Black. Suddenly she finds herself drawn into the world of the werewolves, ancestral enemies of the vampires, and she finds her loyalties tested.

Sam Samadian, Chairman of SwissOpenAir Concept says that for the last 21 years SwissOpenAir cinema has been developing its outdoor screen technology and surrounding sound systems.

Our screen is a 70 Ton steel structure consisting of Hydraulic engines which erect the 4000 square foot screen from a horizontal position to its vertical showtime

position. The whole operation of raising the screen consists of graphical and laser shows and a soundtrack, and takes about five minutes. The screen itself consists of several sensors for wind protection, light absorbing technique.

The air conditioned projection room houses the latest projection technique for 35mm films, and the sound and surrounding system is tailor made design for each unique location.
