Monday Matinees: BOHEMIAN RHAPSODYMonday July 8, 2019
12:00 PM until 2:00 PM
Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury, who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury's lifestyle spirals out of control, and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that were always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day. Summer film festival twice monthly of recent, popular films! Rated PG-13, 134 minutes.
Rami Malek won the Oscar as "Best Actor" for his performance as Mercury.
Free and open to the public.
