The Much Awaited ‘McQueen’ Is Coming To Dubai

12 Sep 2018

The late fashion designer’s biopic will be screened later this month

Brace yourselves, a film portraying the extraordinary yet tortured life of Alexander McQueen is coming to the UAE's big screen very soon.

Through interviews with the designer's closest friends and family, directors Ian Bonhôte and Peter Ettedgui have put together McQueen, a movie showcasing all aspects of the fashion legend’s life. 

The film will be screened at Dubai’s independent movie theatre, Cinema Akil and it will be played daily from 28 September to 5 October. 

Cinema Akil has staged more than 40 pop-up series and is known to provide a cool art-house experience.

However, the cinema will soon open its doors permanently at Warehouse 68 in Alserkal Avenue.

Starting September 28, they will be launching a brand new program where independant film will be shown daily. 

And on the very first day it will kick off with two regional premieres: Palme d’Or nominee, Yomeddine and of course, the much awaited McQueen.
