It's happening! On cinemas worldwide from 11th July!

Quote from: undefinedAT 8PM ON SUNDAY 9TH JULY 1978 IN THE ROCKET, A SMALL SMOKEY PUB IN CRAWLEY SUSSEX, THE CURE PERFORMED THEIR VERY FIRST SHOW. AROUND 65 PEOPLE JOINED IN THE FUN.

AT 8PM ON SATURDAY 7TH JULY 2018 IN HYDE PARK, A BIG GREEN SPACE IN LONDON, THE CURE TOOK TO THE STAGE TO CELEBRATE 40 YEARS OF PLAYING LIVE. AROUND 65,000 PEOPLE JOINED IN THE FUN.

TO CAPTURE THIS SECOND HISTORIC EVENT IN ALL ITS TECHNICOLOUR GLORY, THE BAND TURNED TO THE MAN RESPONSIBLE FOR MOST OF THE CURE'S ICONIC VIDEOS, AS WELL AS THEIR AWARD WINNING 1986 FILM 'IN ORANGE' - LONG-TIME COLLABORATOR AND MAVERICK DIRECTOR TIM POPE.

THE PERFORMANCE TIM POPE FILMED THAT PERFECT SUMMER EVENING WAS ONE OF THE MOST MEMORABLE CONCERTS OF THE CURE'S LONG CAREER; AS GIANT SIZED SCREENS DANCED, GLITCHED AND FIZZLED WITH IMAGES OF RAGING SEAS, SHIMMERING WEBS AND BROKEN HEARTS, THE CURE FLOWED, FLOATED, PUSHED, POUNDED AND POWERED THEIR WAY THROUGH A 29 SONG 135 MINUTE SPECTACULAR, ON A SPELLBINDING TRIP THROUGH FOUR DECADES OF ALTERNATIVE POPULAR MUSIC.

SAYS POPE: "I WENT TO REHEARSALS IN A VERY CRAMPED STUDIO JUST THE DAY BEFORE THE SHOW, AND SAT IN THE GROUP'S MIDST AS THEY RAN THROUGH THE SONGS. I KNEW AS THE SET LIST UNFOLDED THAT THE ONLY WAY TO SHOW PEOPLE THE REAL CURE WAS TO CAPTURE NOT ONLY THE GRAND, EPIC DIMENSION OF THEIR STAGE SHOW, BUT ALSO THE CLOSE, INTIMATE SIDE OF THIS BAND SIMPLY MAKING MUSIC TOGETHER. NEVER HAS ROBERT SUNG SO WELL, NOR HAS THE CURE PLAYED MORE PASSIONATELY, MORE TIGHTLY, MORE POWERFULLY."

AS THE FILM WAS EDITED TOGETHER ACROSS THE ENSUING MONTHS, SMITH AND POPE WORKING CLOSELY TOGETHER, CURE FOH SOUND MAN PAUL CORKETT, WHO HAD MIXED THE SHOW LIVE ON THE NIGHT, WAS BROUGHT IN TO HELP ROBERT CREATE THE ACCOMPANYING SOUNDSCAPE. MIXING TOOK PLACE AT BRIGHTON ELECTRIC STUDIOS IN LATE 2018, FINAL TWEAKS TO THE THEATRICAL 5.1 AUDIO BEING CARRIED OUT AT ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS IN EARLY 2019. AS WITH THE 4K VISUALS POPE HAD SNARED WITH HIS CAMERAS, THE AIM WAS TO CREATE A TOTALLY IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE FOR CINEMA-GOERS.

LOOKING BACK NEAR THE END OF THE SHOW, ROBERT SAYS TO THE AUDIENCE "IF YOU'D ASKED ME IN THE ROCKET WHAT I'D BE DOING IN 40 YEARS, I WOULD HAVE GOT THE ANSWER VERY WRONG... BUT IT'S THANKS TO EVERYONE AROUND ME, AND TO YOU ALL AS WELL THAT I'M STILL HERE... SO THANK YOU VERY MUCH! IT'S BEEN A GOOD FOUR DECADES... HERE'S TO THE NEXT ONE!"

IN MARCH 2019 SMITH AND THE REST OF THE CURE - SIMON GALLUP, JASON COOPER, ROGER O'DONNELL AND REEVES GABRELS - WERE INDUCTED INTO THE ROCK AND ROLL HALL OF FAME, ANNOUNCING EXCITING NEWS LATER THAT SAME NIGHT ABOUT THE PROGRESS OF THE GROUP'S FIRST NEW STUDIO ALBUM IN MORE THAN A DECADE.

"ANNIVERSARY 1978-2018" WAS AND IS THE CURE DRAWING A QUITE REMARKABLE LINE BETWEEN THEIR PAST AND THEIR FUTURE.

Anyone interested in joining me to the screening at NYC's Landmark 57 on July 11th?

We just moved to NJ, my husband is not particularly fond of the Cure, already joined me to the Hyde Park gig in London and I'd love to meet new people who share my passion :).

"Love Song" from Hyde Park is the "preview" for the film:


I looked and the film shows in a few cinemas not too far from my home, not just on July 11th, but also on a few other dates between then and July 28th, so I hope to make one of them.  :cool

Tim Pope interview (about "Anniversary"):

http://www.curzonblog.com/all-posts/interview-tim-pope-director-of-the-cure-anniversary

Quote from: undefinedMTV was starting up and spreading across the world and our videos became very well known with people literally waiting to see what we did next. I think [that] created a lot of The Cure's visual identity. Videos subsequently have become formulaic and boring, and our work let us cut free of convention, mainly as the rule book had yet to be written. I also directed the 1987 35mm film The Cure In Orange, which had a theatrical release and became a fan favourite, capturing the band just at the moment they hit the big time.

In many ways, our new film Anniversary is Orange 2 and I think, given my appearance in the director's chair, our audience will pick up on this. For its part, it draws a line in the sand between their old catalogue of songs and their upcoming album which Robert has just announced and is their first in over 10 years.

What do you hope fans will experience when they see Anniversary 1978-2018 in cinemas?

Pope: Well, I want the audience to feel like they are sat in the band's middle, like I did that day that I described earlier. It is an up close and personal experience. At moments we are super close to Robert's face, the next so wide the audience looks like ants. Given that so much of The Cure's music literally provided the soundtracks to people's lives I want our audience to come on the 40-year journey, too.

It's release coincides with the 50th anniversary of Bowie releasing Space Oddity.
