Beyoncé Announces Renaissance Film, Coming to Theaters December 1st

Beyoncé fans rejoice! The Queen Bey has announced that a film chronicling her record-breaking Renaissance World Tour will premiere in theaters on December 1st.

The film, titled Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé, will feature performance footage from the tour, behind-the-scenes material from the making of the Grammy-winning “Renaissance” album, and elements from the album’s long-rumored visual counterpart.

“When I am performing, I am nothing but free,” Beyoncé declared in the film’s trailer, which you can watch below. “The goal for this tour was to create a place where everyone is free, and no one is judged. Start over, start fresh, create the new — that’s what the RENAISSANCE is about.”

Tickets for the film are on sale now with prices starting at $22. Viewers will have the option of an IMAX experience at AMC theaters or a Dolby Cinema screening, among other premium formats. According to the press release, the movie will be available for at least four consecutive weekends.


“It is about Beyoncé’s intention, hard work, involvement in every aspect of the production, her creative mind and purpose to create her legacy, and master her craft,” reads a press release for the film.

The Renaissance World Tour kicked off in May and wrapped up in Kansas City, Missouri on October 1st. The tour was a critical and commercial success, grossing over $300 million and selling over 2 million tickets.

Beyoncé’s previous concert film, Homecoming, was released on Netflix in 2019. The film chronicled her historic 2018 performance at Coachella, the first time a black woman had headlined the festival.

Homecoming was nominated for six Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Documentary or Special. It won two awards, Outstanding Music Direction and Outstanding Production Design for a Variety, Nonfiction, Event, or Special (Single or Multi-Camera).
