Beyoncé is set to release her recent “Renaissance” tour as a concert film through AMC Theatres, according to an announcement on Sunday night. The singer also released a trailer to go with the announcement on social media.

“Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé” is set to release on Dec. 1 in the U.S., Canada and Mexico (with more cities to follow).

The film will screen throughout the day on Thursdays through Sundays for a minimum of four weeks. In the U.S., tickets will cost $22 (plus tax) for all standard showtimes. And it will also be available in IMAX and Dolby Cinema, as well as other premium large-format screens.

Tickets are on sale now at all U.S. AMC locations, and Fandango. The film follows megastar Taylor Swift’s own “Eras Tour” heading to the AMC chain on Oct. 13, and like that film, it will also be distributed to non-AMC theaters, including Cinemark, Regal, Cinepolis and Cineplex.

Here’s the official description:

“Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé” accentuates the journey of “Renaissance World Tour” from its inception to the opening show in Stockholm, Sweden, to the grand finale in Kansas City, Missouri. 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. Received with extraordinary acclaim by International and US media alike, Beyoncé’s outstanding performance during “Renaissance World Tour” created a sanctuary for freedom, acceptance, and shared joy. Its maximalist production welcomed more than 2.7 million fans from around the world, who travelled across oceans to enjoy Club Renaissance. Now, millions of moviegoers will get caught up in the Joy Parade, the monumental dance party that celebrates everyone’s right to be themselves, close to home.

While the unofficial news of the film broke on Saturday, fans were quick to spot that AMC CEO Adam Aron recently followed Beyoncé on X (formerly Twitter).

The “Renaissance” album was first released in 2022, but she has yet to drop the “visual album” music videos she’s had in the works. Her last concert film was 2019’s “Homecoming,” released via Netflix after being filmed at the Coachella festival.
