Bohemian Rhapsody Sing-Along

Practise your scaramouche and have your air guitars ready.

After a decade spent in development hell, Bohemian Rhapsody exploded onto our screens late last year to an almost overwhelming chorus of praise. Running through the life of Freddy Mercury, the perennial face of Queen, the film has all the energy and electricity of one of his songs, helped in no small part by a stellar (and Oscar-nominated) performance by Rami Malek.

Beginning with Mercury as a baggage handler at Heathrow Airport and taking us all the way to the legendary Live Aid concert in 1985, this is a journey through the (many) tumultuous ups and downs of the moustachioed man's life and career. From his relationship with Mary Austin and the drugs and alcohol that fuelled so many years, to his final, redemptive connection with Jim Hutton, the film connects the dots of Mercury's life with the songs that we all know the words to.

Penthouse Cinema is now giving fans the chance to belt out the lyrics as they watch. The Bohemian Rhapsody Sing-Along will take place on Saturday, 2 February at 8.30pm, and again on Sunday, 3 February at 3pm. Practice your scaramouche and have your air guitars ready, because this is going to rock you.
