The ultimate ABBA party is about to hit Ster-Kinekor cinemas, for two days only on October 8 and 10, 2023.

Have the time of your life when ABBA: The Movie dances into cinemas for a special two-day fan event! Captured by director Lasse Hallström during the iconic group’s mega-successful tour of Australia, this newly remastered film will take you on a flashback journey to the 1970s when disco reigned supreme and ABBA was music royalty.

Including backstage footage as well as full-length performances of some of ABBA's greatest hits including Dancing Queen, SOS, Name Of The Game and Waterloo, the film provides a rare look at the hugely successful band during the height of their popularity.

The subplot is a mocumentary-style story of a country radio disc-jockey who attempts to land an interview with the band. As deadlines loom, the film is a slapstick mix of happenstance and error by the young DJ who is tasked with getting the coveted interview, while ABBA’s dedicated bodyguard does everything he can to stop it from happening.

This fan event also features exclusive extras, including an insight from the creators of the phenomenally-successful London-based concert ABBA: Voyage, plus a glimpse at ABBA The Museum in Stockholm, lyric videos from hit songs, and also some extremely rare behind-the-scenes footage from preparations ahead of the 1977 tour.

Starring the famous ABBA four: Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Benny Andersson, Björn Ulvaeus, and Agnetha Fältskog, and directed by Lasse Hallstrom, ABBA: The Movie will be screened at the following Ster-Kinekor cinemas on October 8 and 10 only: Ster-Kinekor Gateway in Umhlanga as well as Cinema Nouveau Rosebank in Johannesburg; Ster-Kinekor Brooklyn in Pretoria: and at Ster-Kinekor V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.
