For the first time ever the Last Night of the Proms will be screened live in Odeon cinemas on Saturday 8 September. As part of the culmination of an extraordinary British summer, cinemas across the UK will be screening the world’s most famous classical music event in 3D.

This is also the first time the BBC Proms will be available to view in 3D. Eight specialist cameras will give audiences in cinemas the best seats in the house and provide an immersive experience. With key camera positions in front of the conductor, and a remote camera within the orchestra that rotates to 180 degrees and can pan and tilt, audiences will feel that they are actually in the orchestra, with a 3D view of every instrument.

The Last Night of the Proms is the traditional finale to the BBC Proms, two months of the finest music-making at the Royal Albert Hall, broadcast live on BBC Two, BBC One and BBC Radio 3. It’s one of the most popular classical music concerts in the world, watched and listened to by an audience of many millions around the globe. Soloist Nicola Benedetti will perform Bruch’s popular Violin Concerto No 1 in G minor and Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja leads the traditional sing along including Jerusalem and You’ll Never Walk Alone.

Roger Wright, Director of the BBC Proms, says: “Bringing the Last Night of the Proms to cinemas for the first time is a very exciting way of us reaching more people across the UK to celebrate the end of this extraordinary summer. And delivering the Last Night of the Proms in 3D means audiences will be able to experience the event like never before.”
