The Cure to screen 40th anniversary live film in cinemas

By | Published on Thursday 30 May 2019

The Cure have announced that they will be slapping a live concert film of their 2018 40th anniversary show in London’s Hyde Park up on cinema screens in July.

Directed by Tim Pope and with the snappy title of ‘The Cure – Anniversary 1978-2018 Live In Hyde Park London’, it captures the band’s career-spanning set in 4K video and 5.1 surround sound.

“This really was the perfect way to celebrate 40 years of the band”, says Robert Smith of that show. “It was a fabulous day none of us will ever forget”.

Adds Pope of the film itself: “Working alongside Robert for these 37 years of the band’s 40-year history – and also having previously filmed the band for the 35mm ‘In Orange’ 1986 concert film – I wanted cinema-goers to feel like they were in the thick of the action, in the heart of the music. Our film really captures the true power and passion of The Cure’s music for a global audience”.

The film will be screened in cinemas around the world on 11 Jul, with tickets set to go on sale on 6 Jun. Find your nearest screening here.
