Ster-Kinekor Theatres is hosting the exclusive screening of Queen: A Night in Bohemia on Saturday, July 23 at 8 pm, Sunday, July 24 at 2.30 pm, and Tuesday, July 26 at 8 pm, at select cinemas.
This special cinema event includes the monumental and energetic Queen concert, which was filmed live on Christmas Eve 1975 at the Hammersmith Odeon in London; and a never-seen-before documentary featuring footage of Freddie Mercury, recently discovered live performance footage, interviews with all four band members, outtakes, backstage clips and sessions for the first-ever recording of Bohemian Rhapsody, the ground breaking, chart-topping British single from A Night at the Opera.
Bohemian Rhapsody sealed Queen’s transition from ambitious upstarts into one of the biggest and most important bands of the era – and beyond. The band’s first-ever live recording of the smash hit is one of the highlights of the concert film.
Brian May of Queen said: “This concert was very special because it was the first time we ever played a whole show completely live on TV… the Christmas Show. The quality, after great rescue work and transfer into the digital domain, is amazing. And the energy we had comes across very forcefully.”
The film has been specifically restored with stunning 5.1 sound and remastered for a big screen cinema experience, and offers an illuminating insight into Queen’s game-changing year of 1975. The running time of this special cinema event is 89 minutes.
The film will be screened at The Zone in Rosebank, Sandton and Eastgate in Johannesburg; Brooklyn and The Grove in Pretoria; Gateway in Durban; Baywest Mall in Port Elizabeth (where a special Cine Prestige screening takes place at 8 pm on Friday, July 22); and at Cavendish, Tygervalley and Somerset Mall in Cape Town.
