I’ve always been a bit of fan of Queen and in 2015 Nu Metro Cinemas will be embarking on a ground-breaking new content strategy for cinemas nationally that features screening specialised, alternative entertainment content featuring the mega group from yesteryear. Kicking things off is the South African premiere of QUEEN ROCK MONTREAL on 14 & 20 January 2015 from 20:00 at Nu Metro cinemas in Johannesburg (The Glen), Pretoria (Menlyn), Cape Town (V&A Waterfront), Durban (The Pavilion) and Port Elizabeth (Walmer Park).
Celebrating QUEEN’s status as one of the bands which defined contemporary rock music – QUEEN Rock Montreal is hailed as capturing one of the world’s greatest bands’ all-time best performances. It was recorded live at Montreal’s Forum in 1981 and was the first time a band had filmed an entire show in full cinema format on 35mm film. Now the original footage has been re-mastered for the first time ever in 4K Ultra HD, coupled with superb surround sound to create the best ever cinema-event experience for Queen fans around the world. And, Nu Metro Cinemas will be making this high quality cinema event a reality for South African fans as well!
Showcasing a theatrical and brilliantly entertaining performance in its full pixel-sharp glory, the concert features many of QUEEN’s favourite hits – including “We Will Rock You”, “Killer Queen”, “Under Pressure”, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”, “We Are The Champions”, “Another One Bites The Dust” and “Bohemian Rhapsody”. The follow-up to the award-winning Hungarian Rhapsody concert film, QUEEN Rock Montreal is the ultimate big screen music event.
The film will be screened in the SceneXtreme cinemas at Nu Metro The Glen (Jhb) and Menlyn (Pta), with 4K Ultra HD image quality and full 5.1 surround sound. It will be screened in standard HD with 5.1 surround sound at Nu Metro Pavilion (Dbn), V&A Waterfront (CT) and Walmer Park (P.E).
The screenings of QUEEN Rock Montreal will take place exclusively at Nu Metro Cinemas on 14 & 20 January 2015 at 20:00 only!
Book early to avoid disappointment – this is one of those memorable cinema events that happen only once in a lifetime.
