To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer the following question.
What day does Robert Smith claim to be in love in the famous track of the same name?
At 8pm on Sunday 9th July 1978 in The Rocket, a small smokey pub in Crawley Sussex, The Cure performed their very first show. Around 65 people joined in the fun.
At 8pm on Saturday 7th July 2018 in Hyde Park, a big green space in London, The Cure took to the stage to celebrate 40 years of playing live. Around 65,000 people joined in the fun.
To capture this second historic event in all its technicolour glory, the band turned to the man responsible for most of The Cure’s iconic videos, as well as their award-winning 1986 film ‘In Orange’ – long-time collaborator and maverick director Tim Pope.
The performance Tim Pope filmed that perfect summer evening was one of the most memorable concerts of The Cure’s long career; as giant-sized screens danced, glitched and fizzled with images of raging seas, shimmering webs and broken hearts, The Cure flowed, floated, pushed, pounded and powered their way through a 29-song, 135-minute spectacular, on a spellbinding trip through four decades of alternative popular music.
From ‘Lovesong’ to ‘Lullaby’, from ‘Boys Don’t Cry’ to ‘Burn’, from ‘Fascination Street’ to ‘Friday I’m in Love’, Robert Smith and his extraordinary band – Simon Gallup, Jason Cooper, Roger O’Donnell and Reeves Gabrels – take us on a magical trip through time. Captured in glorious 4K with a 5.1 audio mix, it’s a fabulously immersive cinematic experience.
The Cure – Anniversary 1978-2018 Live in Hyde Park comes to Picturehouse Cinemas on Thursday 11 July.Find your local cinema and book your tickets now.
