The concert film Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars will be broadcast to an international cinema audience on March 7, 2017, in celebration of the life and music of David Bowie, courtesy of recently launched event cinema company, CinEvents. The evening will include a new film produced by MOJO magazine exclusively for this screening.

The film will be screened in multiplex and independent cinemas across the UK as well as selected countries across Europe; Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Germany and France with further details to come.

Ziggy Stardust & The Spiders From Mars



Directed by pioneering rock film-maker D.A. Pennebaker, this documentary and concert film captures Bowie and his band, The Spiders From Mars, performing at London’s Hammersmith Odeon on July 3, 1973. It was at this now-infamous concert that Bowie made a sudden announcement, shocking fans and media alike by stating “it’s the last show we’ll ever do”. Rather than marking his withdrawal from music, his declaration signalled the retirement of the Ziggy Stardust persona, and the end of a hugely influential chapter in Bowie’s own story.

In addition to the concert movie, the evening will include a new film produced by MOJO magazine exclusively for these screenings. This film will feature MOJO’s Editor-In-Chief Phil Alexander in conversation with The Spiders From Mars drummer Woody Woodmansey, whose own acclaimed memoir, My Life With Bowie: Spider From Mars, has just been published by Sidgwick & Jackson. As well as re-living that fateful night in 1973, Woody will provide further insight into what he describes as “the adventure of a lifetime.”

CinEvents are working with MOJO magazine – Britain’s biggest-selling music magazine, which Bowie guest edited in 2002 – to further enhance the cinema-going experience. Every attendee will receive a copy of the magazine which will fully document the Ziggy-era, and which will also feature an exclusive David Bowie/Spiders From Mars Collectors’ Cover. This special souvenir cover will not be available in the shops, and is destined to become one of the rarest covers ever produced by the award-winning MOJO team with a retail value of £7.99

Tickets will be on sale from 11 January and customers will be able to find their closest participating cinemas via www.ziggystardust-cinevents.com

Picturehouse Entertainment is partnering with CinEvents for distribution of this event.
