Free Screening: Where The Wild Things Are



The Doha Film Institute will continue its family-oriented free outdoor pop-up cinema screenings this weekend with fantasy adventure film Where The Wild Things Are.

Taking place at the Museum of Islamic Art (MIA) Park on Friday (January 16) at 7pm, the screening is free of charge and seating is on a first-come first-served basis.

Where The Wild Things Are is the feature film adaptation of Maurice Sendak's classic children's book.

Directed by innovative filmmaker Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, Her), the film follows the adventure of Max, a mischievous young boy who is sent to his room after rebelling against his mother.

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 the Institute’s signature mix of specialty film programming and unique cultural events.

The film is in English and will be presented with Arabic subtitles.
