‘Rocky’ stars Sylvester Stallone as Rocky Balboa, a small town club fighter from Philadelphia who gets a chance to play at the world heavyweight championship. The story follows his inspirational journey from the streets to the boxing ring.
The movie won the Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Director.
The screening will be held at the Marina Park Area, next to the main entrance of Katara Cultural Village at 7pm. The screening is part of DFI’s ‘Pop-up Cinema’ which comprises free outdoor screenings of popular movies as long as the cooler months last, Gulf Times has reported.
The 1976 sports film has been particularly picked given its focus on sports and motivation, which is in line with the National Sports Day celebrations that will take place throughout the country.
