If you’re anything like me, just the first few notes of any song by Queen fills your body with an overwhelming urge to give the vocal cords a workout.
But it turns out, if you give into said urges during a movie screening of Bohemian Rhapsody, other people in the cinema can be less than impressed. Probably mostly because my vocal cords couldn’t be less like Freddie Mercury’s.
So Goodwood’s Capri Theatre is stepping in and giving us what we really want – a singalong screening of the movie.
It’s happening on Saturday February 2 from 6.30pm, and not only is singing encouraged, but also clapping, stamping and all-out seat dancing.
In case you’ve missed it, Bohemian Rhapsody the movie was released in late 2018, celebrating the music and story of Queen, and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury.
Just this week, it won Best Motion Picture – Drama at the Golden Globes, and Rami Malek who plays Freddie won Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama.
Tickets to the Bohemian Rhapsody singalong screening are $20, which includes a glass of bubbles on arrival to lubricate the vocal cords. You can buy them here.
You can also stick around after the movie for a soiree in the foyer with drink specials and food packs from Two Sisters available.
