Where to go, what to do today in Shanghai.
Movie Night: The Matrix @ The Pearl
The next installation in The Pearl’s movie night series is Academy Award winner The Matrix. Directed by The Wachowskis and starring personalities like Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, and Carrie-Anne Moss, the film depicts a dystopian future in which reality as perceived by most humans is actually a
simulated reality called “the Matrix”, created by sentient machines to subdue the human population, while their bodies’ heat and electrical activity are used as an energy source. The Pearl also offers a ¥88 burger deal including a bacon cheeseburger, fries, and a beer. Don’t miss out!
