I have visited raffles and i was told they dont have a theater as you say in the report !!

Thanks Naithon. The school itself actually lists have a "theater" on its facilities page - http://www.rwadubai.com/facilities/

I suspect however it's how you define it. For the sake of clarity we have removed the word from our review. Thank you for your feedback.
