Fathom Events will bring beloved entertainer Luciano Pavarotti’s story to movie theaters across the country on June 4th with a screening event designed to bring the life and performances of one of the great operatic voices to the masses. This exclusive screening will give audiences the first chance to experience the new documentary film Pavarotti. From his earliest beginnings to the very last days of his life, the Ron Howard-directed film follows the renowned singer over the course of his prolific career, revealing previously unknown details about the legendary tenor; and harnessing the incredible sounds and music from the man credited for bringing an “elite art form to the masses.” The June 4th event, which is the lead-up to the film’s North American theatrical release on June 7th, includes a special introduction from Howard, in which he speaks to his unique role as director and personal connection to the project.

Tickets for “Pavarotti Premiere Screening Event” will be available beginning Friday, May 3rd at FathomEvents.com and participating theater box offices.

This special event will screen in more than 600 movie theaters nationwide on Tuesday, June 4th at 7 pm local time, through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network (DBN).

“As a film maker, and more importantly a lover of music, Luciano Pavarotti’s story has always interested me, and I am honored to be able to share his life, music and personality with audiences everywhere,” states Ron Howard. “He revolutionized opera by bringing it to all people and I am grateful to pay tribute to his legacy.”

“We are thrilled to partner with CBS Films to give U.S. audiences the exclusive first look at Pavarotti,” says Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt. “Our large fanbases of classical music and documentary lovers will come together at their local cinema to enjoy this highly anticipated film.”

From the filmmaking team behind the highly-acclaimed documentary The Beatles: Eight Days A Week – The Touring Years, Pavarotti is a riveting film that lifts the curtain on the icon who brought opera to the people. This cinematic event features history-making performances and intimate interviews, including never-before-seen footage and cutting-edge Dolby Atmos technology. Pavarotti will give audiences around the world a stunningly intimate portrait of the most beloved entertainers of all time, who brought opera to the people.
