FILM | Middle East Film Festival
Did you know that save for one IMAX cinema, Saudi Arabia bans cinemas? Mahmoud Sabbagh's drama-comedy Barakah Meets Barakah won't be screened back in the country he's from, but you can see it here alongside Egypt's Clash, Iran's The Paternal House and Lebanon's A World Not Ours.

MUSIC | Scorpions 50th Anniversary Tour
Formed in 1965, they sparked the first wave of metal in the '70s and brought hard rock into Billboard's top charts with Rock You Like A Hurricane and No One Like You. This year, Scorpions celebrate their 50th anniversary with a gig you wouldn't want to miss. Just remember, hair-whipping head bangs are necessary.
