OUR EASTER GIVE-AWAY:-
“IRON MAIDEN: FLIGHT 666”
WITH thanks to Vue Cinemas we are pleased to announce
that we have tickets to give-away to one of the critically acclaimed
rock-umentary's special global release screenings on Tuesday, 21
In London, UK: 20 March 2009, Vue Entertainment announced that it
will showcase 'Iron Maiden: Flight 666', the first
film on the iconic rock band Iron Maiden, winners of the 2009 Brit
Award for Best British Live Act. This extraordinary feature length
documentary film will be shown in some of the Vue cinemas for one
day only on Tuesday, 21 April 2009 at 7pm as part of "Maiden
Day" – a global release on over 400 screens in 35 countries.
The film has just won the "24 BEATS PER SECOND" award for best music
documentary at the prestigious SXSW Film & Music
Festival in Austin, Texas.
Iron Maiden: Flight 666 was shot as the band embarked on the first
leg of their momentous 'SOMEWHERE BACK IN TIME WORLD TOUR'
in early 2008, considered to be the most ambitious and adventurous
tour in rock history. The film is a revealing portrait of
one of the world's most successful rock bands and an inspirational
and often humorous account of the chaotic world of a band
‘Flight 666’ gives a close-up behind-the-scenes look at what
happened on and off stage, when Maiden gave full access to a
film crew for the first time ever, and contains some of the most
spectacular live footage yet seen of the band. Taking the
viewer from Mumbai to Santiago, LA to Sydney, Tokyo to Sao Paolo,
Buenos Aires to Toronto and all points between, through
exhaustion and fan pandemonium, travelling with band and crew on the
plane to and from shows, in the bar and during leisure
time, this really is Access All Areas.
The film will be distributed worldwide in 2K digital cinema, the
highest quality standard in cinemas today, together with 5.1
surround sound by Arts Alliance Media, in association with Phantom
Music Management and EMI Records.
Vue’s Marketing Director Mark De Quervain said:- “We are delighted
to be able to offer Vue customers the opportunity to be
part of a unique global music event. The one-off screening of
‘Flight 666’ again demonstrates Vue’s continuing commitment to
offering customers unbeatable choice.”
Iron Maiden's Manager, Rod Smallwood commented to us that:- "This
film is a testament to an extraordinary tour and to our
incredible fans all over the world. Seeing it on the big screen, in
digital, will make you feel like you were there on that
