    At some point in 1992/1993, Live at Donington was released in cinemas to promote the VHS.
    Here's the proof I have:
    From ebay:


    From BBFC website (the 'Film' under TYPE OF MEDIA shows that it's a cinema release):


    1) Did anyone on this forum see it in cinemas?
    2) Did it only get a cinema release in the UK?

    I'm pretty curious to learn more about it as the Internet doesn't have much about this on it. AFAIK, this and LTBR (in America, which Dave Grohl said he saw in theatres and was what got him into rock) are the only AC/DC concert cinema releases.

    Your eBay photo just shows some kind of truck accessory.

    Edit: That's better.

    Mati saw River Plate in theaters, it got a limited release.

    Yep, I saw this in Birmingham - can't remember the cinema's name now, sorry but I think it was in the street where most of the theatres are in Brum. There was a quiz on BBC Radio 1 with Tommy Vance who gave out questions along the lines of 'What Voltage?'... Also got to see RP at Hammersmith.

    It wasn't in a theatre, it was in a small venue were bands usually play, they just put a projector and screened the blu ray.

    BTW, I didn't know David Mallet directed Live At Donington!

    Really? lol I thought it was a theatrical thing, it was before the Blu ray was out wasn't it??

    You saw it way before we did In the states I know that.

    It was in cinema's in various countries in Europe. You had to win tickets via a radio quiz. In the Netherlands it was shown in the 013 theatre in Tilburg in the fall of '92. I didn't win tickets unfortunately..
    Sure must have been a blast with volume on 12 in a little theatre.

    same here. it was just a one off screening to promote the commercial release. nothing special

    you'd have thought the Hatfield cinema people would have at least spelt Donington correctly

    Cool. It seemed that they took their seats among the fans. Is that correct? Was there some interaction possible during or after the showing or did they leave after a few songs?

    Yep, I won two tickets to see it in London, local radio station was giving away free tickets. Was just a showing, no band members were there.

    They came on stage stage beforehand to loud applause, then took their seats in the crowd. I think they left after a few songs. Also Ozzy was on the big screen before the start too, crazy as usual. Anyway it was great to see it on the big screen!

    Sorry, I just chose one Donington thread to ask this:

    I love the commentary track they did - I have lost my DVD somewhere and can't find it thus can't listen to it. Have not found it on YouTube either, any ideas where the commentary track is online?

    Great track, remember this controversial gem:

    "Chris Slade is the best musician the band has ever had" - Malcolm Young

    Saw it in a cinema in Sheffield after winning tickets on a local radio station. Was right down the front that day so it’s great to have a nice memento to look back on.

    Chris Slade isn't mentioned during the commentary track on anywhere else on the DVD.

    It was there. Mal said that, and as I recall, it was there

    As I recall the quote was "He's a perfect drummer. Probably a better musician than any of us" and I would imagine it came from a interview around the mid-90's when Phil came back, rather than the 8 or 9 years later when the "commentary" track was likely recorded for the DVD release.

    The Donington video was premiered at the Odeon in Leicester Square, in London. The pass for the screening is in the top right of this photo.



    It then was shown at cinemas across the U.K.
    I also went to see it at the Odeon in Warrington.
