Dubai Opera to screen premiere of Joker

One of the most talked about films this year is coming to theatres in Dubai this week, and if you’re after a spot to watch Joker, Dubai Opera has just the screening.

Fans of DC and movies alike can catch the premiere of Joaquin Phoenix’s mesmerising performance as The Clown Prince of Crime in Joker, and tickets are now on sale.

Filmgoers can catch the premiere on Thursday October 3 at 8pm, along with two other screenings on Friday October 4 at 3pm and 7pm.

Tickets are priced from Dhs60, while those looking for popcorn and a house beverage can get just that for Dhs95. There’s also an unlimited beverage package for Dhs120.

Phoenix stars as Arthur Fleck, a struggling stand-up comedian that’s is pushed to the brink by the system he has to live in and abide by. Commence Fleck’s descent (and maniacal laughter).

For a closer look at how Joaquin Phoenix has the last laugh in Joker, check out our interview with the star right here.

And, for our thoughts on Joker, have a look at our review. Sneak peek: we’ve given it five stars for very good reason.

Fan of the world’s classiest secret agent, James Bond? Dubai Opera will also be hosting a red carpet premiere of Skyfall on Saturday October 5.
Dhs60 (single ticket), Dhs95 (house beverages and popcorn), Dhs120 (unlimited house beverages). Thu Oct 3, 8pm; Fri Oct 4, 3pm and 7pm. Dubai Opera, Downtown Dubai, www.dubaiopera.com.
