Ready to make memories? 

Here are six things to do in Jeddah this weekend to kick off your September in style…

Thursday, September 1

Catch a new movie at the cinema

This weekend at Vox Cinemas, there will be five new movies showing. For those of you that like a thriller, opt for either Into The Deep or Stowaway. For something a bit more intense, two horror movies Horror Stoker Hils and The Harbinger also launch this Thursday. Or perhaps it’s a romance movie you’re feeling, in that case you can watch After Ever Happy. Whatever your mood, there’s a new movie for it this weekend.

Catch up with a friend over a specialty coffee at Brew 92

Wind down and relax after a busy week at Jeddah’s finest coffee shop. Try one of their newest creations such as the Coconut Lavender Lemonade or Matcha Frappe. Open until 12.30am, don’t leave without trying the banana and Nutella waffles.
