City Mall

Possibly, the nicest of all the Malls in Amman.  It has lots of great shops and a Carrefour.  We were here this weekend to watch The Hobbit.  There is a great big movie screen so it was wonderful to see The Hobbit on a good screen.  We did of course miss the Embassy, but we were grateful that we got to see the movie in a peaceful, clean, smoke free movie theatre.  No cell phones went off which was really nice.  In Taiwan, cell phones would always go off and people would chat away :-)  We were expecting the same etiquette here and are happy that it is not the case.

There is another movie theatre in Baraka Mall, a small mall in Sweifieh, our neighbourhood.  It is not as good as the City Mall theatre.

  2. Why didn't you like the cinema in Baraka Mall? I have been to both of them on several occasions and I found the one in Baraka Mall to be more cozy. When I watched "The Hunger Games" at City Mall, the quality of the sound was awful. Glad you enjoyed "The Hobbit".
    Happy Holidays!

  3. Hi Jessie, I agree, it is cosy, but I find that gives some people the excuse to smoke and talk on their cell phones. We've been there twice now and it's happened. I find City Malls cinema a bit cleaner :-) Happy New Year!!
