Flik Cinemas and Mirqab Mall joined forces with Shooting Stars to bring Shazam! to over 150 DC Comic fans in Doha with an exclusive Premiere Screening on 2 April 2019. Among the fans were over 50 of Qatar’s most prominent media figures and digital influencers, all eager to be the first to watch one of DC’s highest rated superhero films.
John Howard, Flik Cinema’s newly appointed General Manager, claimed that the writing was ‘era-defining’:
Shazam! is a highly entertaining spin on the Superhero genre but DC Comic’s production is more than just a comedy. With the right blend of jeopardy and joy, Shazam! could redefine the genre.’
Rony Mourani, General Manager of Al Mana Malls added:
We are delighted to host this film as our first premiere since this action-packed family film fits perfectly into the persona of Flik Cinemas at Mirqab Mall.’
Derryl D’Souza the Country Manager of Shooting Stars added:
The premiere was a success… It was the best I’ve seen in Qatar. The group contributions were there to see. I am sure it will be the first of many!
