Bohemian Rhapsody Coming To Outdoor Cinemas Across The UK

It may feel a little too early in the year to be making summer plans - not to mention a little bit too freezing to contemplate spending extended periods of time outside - but for film fans it's a great time to get excited.

The Alfresco Film Company has announced its outdoor cinema lineup, with the Oscar-nominated Bohemian Rhapsody taking centre stage as a featured film.

The hit movie will be blasting from the company's PA at several locations around the UK, including Chippenham and Worcester, with more locations to be announced shortly.

A statement on the company's website said: "We're out of the starting blocks like never before this year, with more and more screenings being announced and selling already.

"It's apparent that 'this year's [The Greatest] Showman' is going to be Bohemian Rhapsody; tickets are selling like hot cakes for screenings of the movie. We can't wait to experience it out in the open, with those magnificent songs cranked up and thundering from our PA system!"

Along with Bohemian Rhapsody, other screenings will include showings of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Pretty Woman, Labyrinth, Grease, Top Gun and Hot Fuzz.

But the film most people will be wanting to sing (or scream) along to is surely the Freddie Mercury biopic.

Bohemian Rhapsody became an instant hit after premiering back in late October 2018.

The film follows the life and career of Mercury, the late frontman of rock band Queen, played by Rami Malek.

Preparing for the film, Malek is said to have watched Mercury's performance at the 1985 Live Aid concert over 1,500 times on YouTube to nail his own version, and he clearly got something right.

Recently, at the Golden Globes, Malek took home the award for Best Actor and he's even bagged his first Oscar nomination for the same title.

The film itself took home several Globes, having also been nominated for several BAFTAs, and now it has secured five Oscar nominations.

For many, Bohemian Rhapsody seems to have become an instant classic - probably helps when a movie is littered with a host of timeless songs, of course. You'd have to imagine the singalong factor at the summer events is going to be high.

If you haven't already got plans for the summer, this definitely seems like one to put in the calendar.
