Even with Freddie Mercury gone, Queen still rocked the Olympics closing night ceremony. So while we wait for writer Peter Morgan’s Mercury biopic starring Sacha Baron Cohen, Screenvision will bring Queen to the big screen with “Hungarian Rhapsody: Queen Live in Budapest ’86,” a concert doc with footage originally filmed 26 years ago at their gigantic show in Hungary. This show was part of the famous Magic Tour, the last tour for the band with late lead singer Freddie Mercury. Included in the film are the band’s live performances of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” “I Want to Break Free” and “We Are the Champions.”
The film is intro’d with a 25-minute documentary short that includes never-before-seen rare footage from rehearsals, interviews with the band in studio and candid moments on the road during the Magic Tour.
The film will be shown as a very limited engagement nationwide on September 20, 23 and 27. Go here for info and tickets.
