Have the time of your life when ABBA: The Movie dances back into movie theaters for a special two-day fan event celebrating 50 years since the Swedish pop sensation was formed and 45 years since the film’s original release.
Captured by director Lasse Hallström during their mega-successful tour of Australia, the newly remastered film will take you on a flashback journey to the 1970s when disco reigned supreme and ABBA were royalty. Including backstage footage as well as full-length performances of some of ABBA's greatest hits including "Dancing Queen", "Tiger", "Name Of The Game" and "Eagle”, 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—it 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 itfrom happening.
