At 3:30pm and 7:30pm on Sunday 24th January The O2 arena will host the biggest screening ever of the hit film, MAMMA MIA! A giant 92 ft screen will be erected so an audience of 12,000 can see their favourite movie in all its glory. The audience will be encouraged to dress up in their MAMMA MIA! gear and also sing-a-long to a song or two.
The MAMMA MIA! phenomenon has captured audiences across the globe with more productions playing around the world than any other musical. It has been seen by over 30 million people worldwide and has been performed in more than 170 major cities since the first production in London eight years ago.
The MAMMA MIA! movie has replicated the stage success and has grossed over £69.16 million at the UK box office and has been seen by over 4.6 million people in London. It also is the highest grossing film of all time at the UK and Irish box office.
David Campbell, Chief Executive and President of AEG Europe, owners and operators of The O2, commented: ‘The success of MAMMA MIA! the film in the UK is incomparable. It has successfully brought the infectious music of ABBA to an entirely new generation. My children are already tugging at my sleeve to make sure I get them tickets for what will be a brilliant afternoon out.”
Simon Hewlett, Managing Director of Universal Pictures International added: “Universal Pictures are delighted that The O2 will be staging these epic screenings of Mamma Mia! The Movie. Watching Mamma Mia! with a large audience is one of the most uplifting experiences you can imagine and an audience at The O2 is as big as it gets.”
