Queen aficionados won’t want to miss this. A brand new documentary film featuring concert footage from the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers’ 1975 tour hits select U.S. movie theaters nationwide on Tuesday, March 8th at 7 p.m. local time. Queen: A Night In Bohemia offers up a true treasure trove of exclusive material. Most notably, it features their legendary Christmas Eve concert from London’s Hammersmith Odeon – broadcast on BBC TV, and a breakthrough performance prized as a bootleg among Queen fanatics. It also presents the tale of early Queen as told by members of the band themselves, from early struggles and tiny pub gigs to soaring sales and chart-topping hits.

It’s been 40 years now since Queen released the six-minute extravaganza “Bohemian Rhapsody,” which stayed at the top of the U.K. Singles Chart for nine weeks straight and sold over a million copies by the end of January 1976, eventually becoming the U.K’s third best-selling single of all time. On December 24, 1975, Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon played the gig that would seal their status as one of the most important bands of the era as the culmination of their 26-date “Queen Invite You To A Night At The Opera” U.K. tour. The seminal show occurred while “Bohemian Rhapsody” was in the middle of its record-breaking #1 run, and it was the first time the band had played an entire show live on TV. (Just three days after, their fourth studio album A Night At The Opera soared to the top of the charts as well.)

The band’s forthcoming concert film features the very first live recording of this Queen classic, specially restored and remixed for the big screen, alongside never-before-seen interviews, recording session outtakes and more. Tickets are available online through Fathom Events or at participating theater box offices. Over 210 select theaters will be hosting the event.
