Bohemian Rhapsody (12A)
Our bank holiday Gala screening is Bohemian Rhapsody, the extraordinary story of Freddie Mercury, Queen’s lead singer and legendary frontman. Rami Malek has won a whole sideboard of awards with his extraordinary performance as Freddie and just months after its release, the film is already set to become a classic.
If you’ve been to any of our gala screenings, you’ll know it’s going to be a great evening. The film will be followed by a disco and dancing until midnight. As always at New Dot gala events, themed dress is encouraged!
First come first served – be the first to book four or more tickets together and your group will be allocated cocktail tables in the main hall. Strictly limited availability.

And the critics say…(not that it really matters)
“Malek does an impressive job of re-creating Mercury’s moves onstage, but the core of the performance is Malek’s intensely thoughtful, insight-rich channelling of Mercury’s hurt, his alienation and isolation even at the height of his fame.” Richard Brody, The New Yorker
“It’s meticulously staged on a grand and exhilarating scale and the figure of Malek, strutting and capering before that swaying, chanting mass of humanity seems to embody all rock stars in both their vanity and their courage.” Sandra Hall, Sydney Morning Herald
“It’s hard to come up with someone who would have been better than Malek. To his credit, he does the one thing that would most seem impossible: In the stage scenes, he makes you believe he’s Freddie Mercury.” Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
“Frankly, if you are not cheering along with the crowd as Mercury belts out an ultra-satisfying rendition of “We are the Champions,” then a doctor should check your pulse. Somewhere, an outrageous artist knows that his Queen movie rules.” Mara Reinstein, US Weekly
