Mirage City Cinema - Sharjah Events

Mirage City Cinema


Mirage City Cinema interweaves elements of Sharjah’s historic fabric to create an ethereal courtyard cinema experience. Inspiration is drawn from the historical traditions of Sharjah. Floor carpets, which were traditionally used for sleeping and relaxing, are scattered around the courtyard; this draws upon the common practice of using carpets to sleep on rooftops – a tradition now largely defunct due to the prevalence of air-conditioning units occupying roof space,

The fragmented shape of the cinematic space and the choreography of projection and sound from different directions create a sense of disorientation and surrealism.
