Don’t miss Diana Ross on the big screen featuring footage from her historical Central Park concert, as well as exclusive new interviews and clips
To celebrate one of Motown’s most iconic stars, CinEvents & Fathom Events are thrilled to be bringing ‘Diana Ross: Her Life, Love and Legacy’ to UK cinemas on 26th March, marking Ross’ 75th birthday.
For one night only, with the possibility of selected encores, fans will be treated to a night of celebration and musical excellence as they watch a remastered version of Ross’ iconic 1983 Central Park concert, where nearly 1.2 million people united on the Great Lawn. The concert, considered one of the most important events in music and entertainment history was hit half way through by a storm of epic proportions. Undeterred by the weather Ross’ heroically battled on in the conditions, until the concert was finally brought to a standstill. Vowing to come back for her fans the Dream Girl remained true to her promise, returning the next day to finish the concert in legendary style.
Alongside the concert showing on the big screen for the first time, the film also includes special, never-before-seen footage and messages from the Ross family, including sons Ross Naess and Evan Ross, daughters Rhonda Ross Kendrick and Chudney Ross, with Tracee Ellis Ross giving a loving and passionate introduction to the film in celebration of the superstar’s legacy.
Directed by award-winning producer and director Steve Binder the Fathom Events special is executive produced by Ms. Ross and produced by music/media producer Spencer Proffer of Meteor 17.
“I envisioned a dream and that’s what I created over those two days in Central Park. I picked a goal, and then imagined all the details,” Ms. Ross said. “I believe imagination is magical, that we can think of something and bring it into being.”
CinEvents CEO Joe Evea said “We are thrilled to partner with Fathom & Meteor 17 to bring such an iconic concert experience to cinemas across the UK and selected European territories, in celebration of Diana’s 75th birthday,”
