DFI to screen Rocky on Sport Day at Katara
- Ticket Purchase:
Katara Cultural Village and Doha Film Institute will present a free screening of the classic 1976 sports film, Rocky, starring Sylvester Stallone on February 10, the National Sport Day. The film will be screened at Katara’s Marina Park Area, next to Katara’s Main Entrance and St Regis at 7pm.
Rocky Balboa, a down-and-out club fighter from the mean streets of Philadelphia, gets an unlikely shot at the world heavyweight championship when he takes on reigning champion Apollo Creed. The irresistible story of the boxer who gives his all to win the championship title, won the Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Director, and catapulted Sylvester Stallone to superstardom.
The screening is part of the Doha Film Institute’s ongoing Pop-up Cinema, a series of free outdoor screenings for film-lovers in Qatar taking place throughout the cooler months, and featuring DFI’s signature mix of specialty film programming and unique cultural events.
The film is in English and will be presented without Arabic subtitles.
