Queen Rock Montreal exclusively in Ster-Kinekor Imax Theatres


FOR the first time, one of the world’s biggest bands will perform on cinema’s biggest screens with the global release of Queen Rock Montreal, exclusively in IMAX® beginning 18 January 2024. This exhilarating live concert from 1981, presented by IMAX and Pathé Live in partnership with Mercury Studios and Queen Films, is a window into Queen in their most unalloyed form, giving audiences a larger-than-life, front-row immersive experience. 

The film was digitally remastered for the first time into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience®, including 12-channel surround sound, crystal-clear images, and IMAX’s customised theatre geometry. 

Rock & roll royalty Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon take to the stage in a historic and exhilarating performance of their greatest hits including We Will Rock You, Somebody To Love, Under Pressure, Bohemian Rhapsody, Another One Bites the Dust, We Are The Champions, and additional songs from the popular album The Game including Dragon Attack, Play The Game, and more.

Queen Rock Montreal captures a pivotal moment in the band’s history. When Queen returned for the fourth time to Montreal’s 18000-seat Forum in November 1981, where this concert was recorded, it was after a 15-month absence during which they became the biggest band in the world.  Fuelled by the release of The Game album, their smash single Under Pressure, and extensive touring, Queen then dominated the charts in every major territory across the globe.

The two shows that took place in Montreal – November 24 and 25, 1981 – were arranged specifically to set Queen up for another first: shooting a full-length concert film to properly document their live show, highlighting the state-of-the art sound recording. Having spent almost two years on the road, the group was ready for such a challenge and hit Montreal in top form for what would end up being two consecutive sold out, legendary nights.
