On Thursday March 21st at 6:00 pm and a special captioned matinee on Friday, March 22nd at 1 pm, The Grand continues its weekly “Awards Season” series of recent Award-winning and nominated films sponsored by H&R Block of Ellsworth and Bucksport, presented on the giant Coastal Eye Care with a film featuring the 2019 Best Actor Oscar-winning performance- “Bohemian Rhapsody.” This 2019 Best Picture Oscar-nominee is a foot-stomping celebration of Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury (Rami Malek, in a performance that won this year’s Best Actor Oscar), who defied stereotypes and shattered convention to become one of the most beloved entertainers on the planet. The film traces the meteoric rise of the band through their iconic songs and revolutionary sound, their near-implosion as Mercury’s lifestyle spirals out of control and their triumphant reunion on the eve of Live Aid, where Mercury, facing a life-threatening illness, leads the band in one of the greatest performances in the history of rock music. In the process, cementing the legacy of a band that were always more like a family, and who continue to inspire outsiders, dreamers and music lovers to this day. With Lucy Boynton, Tom Hollander and Mike Myers. (2018. UK. 2hrs, 14min. Directed by Bryan Singer. PG-13.) Tickets for this General Admission presentation are $8 for Adults, $7 for Seniors/Students (15 and under) and $6 Grand Members (as well as Matinee screenings).
