The Last Night of the Proms will be screened live in cinemas for the first time on Saturday, September 8. Odeon cinemas across the UK will play host to 3D broadcasts, made possible by eight specialist cameras in key positions. A camera in front of conductor Jiří Bělohlávek will give a close-up view of the podium, and a remote camera within the orchestra will rotate to 180 degrees, giving a 3D view of each instrument.

‘Bringing the Last Night of the Proms to cinemas for the first time is a very exciting way of us reaching more people across the UK to celebrate the end of this extraordinary summer,’ said BBC Proms director Roger Wright. ‘And delivering the Last Night of the Proms in 3D means audiences will be able to experience the event like never before.’

The event, including performances from Nicola Benedetti in Bruch’s First Violin Concerto and tenor Joseph Calleja, will also be broadcast live on BBC Two and BBC One, and on BBC Radio 3. Audiences with access to a 3D television will be able to view the Proms in 3D at home.
