Bohemian Rhapsody


In 1970 Farrokh  Bulsara,an Indian-British college student and baggage handler joins guitarist Brian May, drummer Roger Taylor and bassist John Deacon to form the band Queen. They played gigs across Britain until they sold their van to produce their first debut album. Farrokh changes his name to Freddie Mercury and becomes engaged to Biba shop assistant Mary Austin. The album hits the charts in America,and, during the band’s U.S. tour,Freddie begins questioning his sexuality.

In 1975, Queen record their fourth album, ‘A Night at the Opera’; the album’s lead single, the six minute song ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, becomes a smash hit. The band’s success continues through to the early 1980s,but tensions arise over the direction of their music and changes in Freddie’s attitude .After a lavish party at his home, Freddie falls for Jim Hutton, a waiter at the party. Freddie’s relationship with his band-mates sours when he announces that he has signed a $4 million solo deal. After a spell living and working in Munich, Freddie is urged by Mary to return to the band. Their set at the 1985 Live Aid dual-venue benefit concert is a massive success.

Freddie Mercury died in 1991 from AIDS-related pneumonia aged 45.

Many people have told me that this is a fantastic film and one not to be missed. It would be great to see some younger people in the audience for this film which I’m sure they will find entertaining. So do bring along the younger members of your family to see what Nayland Cinema is all about.The certificate for this film is PG13. Entry is £2 for 16 and under.

The screening of The Wife  was a great success with over 100 inhabitants of Nayland and the surrounding villages enjoying a lovely evening.

The Anchor are working in association with the cinema to provide special offers for cinema goers. This will most likely include offers such as a special pre-cinema dinner with the possible introduction of a loyalty card. These offers would be seasonal and change on a regular basis. Further updates will be available on this page and at future cinema screenings as discussions progress.

I hope those who attended the last film will be able to use their voucher entitling them to a free glass of wine with a main fish dish from Friday’s menu.
