X-Men: Dark Phoenix to rise at Dubai Opera tomorrow

By Angel Chan

DUBAI 5 JUNE 2019: Dubai Opera will offer its first purely cinematic offering: Simon Kinberg’s iconic ‘X-Men: Dark Phoenix’, for one day only on Friday June 7.

Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender lead an all-star cast in the final chapter of the X-Men Series, produced by 20th Century Fox.

Revered by Marvel fans as the most iconic storyline in the X-Men Universe, X-Men Dark Phoenix is the darkest chapter yet and the first movie ever to be screened at the Dubai Opera.

With top of the range projection, a luxurious venue, amazing acoustics, and comfortable leather chairs, Dubai Opera patrons can enjoy this epic movie with popcorn and a house beverage. This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the Dark Phoenix.

During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet.

The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know, and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.

X-Men Dark Phoenix will show at Dubai Opera on the 7th June 2019 at 3pm and 8pm. Tickets available at Dubaiopera.com. Front  Rows: Dh36 (A&B), Child: Dh50, Adult: Dh60, Adult + drink: Dh70
