Dubai to host the red carpet premiere for the long-awaited Elton John biopic, Rocketman

We can't wait!
One of the summer's highly anticipated films is making its way to Dubai Opera for its premiere...

There’s no doubt that it’s been a stellar 2019 for the film industry, not least because all film releases have been literal blockbusters so far.

Just last weekend, Disney classic Aladdin graced the silver screen here in the UAE, and slated for the summer is The Lion King, Men In Black: International, Spider Man Far From Home, Toy Story 4, Hustle and John Wick 3.

But there’s one critically acclaimed film that is set to be extraordinary, and that’s none other than Rocketman.

The film, an entertaining jukebox musical-style biopic that covers the first four decades of Elton John’s life, is scheduled to hit theatres on June 13, 2019, however, if you can’t wait that much longer (like us here at Buro. HQ), you’re just in luck.

For the first time ever, Dubai Opera will be hosting a red carpet movie premiere where VIP ticket holders have the chance to see the Paramount Pictures’ film two days earlier than its scheduled release, which will be on June 11, 2019.

“I am so pleased to announce our first ever red-carpet film event is the GCC premiere of Rocketman, an epic musical about a truly extraordinary artist,” said Jasper Hope, Chief Executive of Dubai Opera.

The tickets have just gone on sale today and with only 500 tickets available to the public, you better act fast. Tickets can be purchased at

We’ll see you there!
