RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Relive the night Queen made history with its first live performance of "Bohemian Rhapsody." This special presentation of "A Night in Bohemia" will be held Tuesday, March 8, at The Ridgefield Playhouse.

Go back to 1975 for the band's legendary Hammersmith Odeon concert on Christmas Eve 1975 concert, which has been fully restored with stunning 5.1 sound.

Bringing to a climax the most eventful and exciting year so far in the band’s career, this ground-breaking concert was transmitted live on BBC Two’s Old Grey Whistle Test and captured the band performing breakthrough hits such as “Killer Queen,” “Liar,” “Keep Yourself Alive” and “Now I'm Here,” as well as the first-ever live recording of the classic “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

It sealed Queen’s transition from ambitious upstarts into one of the biggest and most important bands of the era.

“This concert was very special because it was the first time we ever played a whole show completely live on TV … the Christmas Show," Brian May of Queen says. "The quality, after great rescue work and transfer into the digital domain, is amazing. And the energy we had comes across very forcefully.”

The cinema event features a new documentary never-before-seen outside the UK that digs deep into the archives to tell the story of Queen. It follows their journey from a struggling band gigging at pubs and colleges to the moment they captured hearts and minds with what was to become one of greatest songs of all time.

Queen’s formative years have never been explored in such detail. With a wealth of unseen interviews, recently unearthed rushes of Queen’s first ever video and outtakes from the recording sessions of "Bohemian Rhapsody," this is the unique story of early Queen told by the band themselves.

The event will begin at 7 p.m

For tickets ($15), call the box office at 203-438-5795 , or visit . The Ridgefield Playhouse is located at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main Street.
