Iron Maiden's "Flight 666" movie will be making a theatrical appearance for one day only on April 21, 2009. Book tickets at your local cinema or check listings here.

This is an opportunity to see the movie on the big screen in digital Hi Definition with 5.1 surround sound - making you feel you were there in the middle of all the action. "Flight 666" was directed by Sam Dunn and Scot McFadyen of the award-winning Banger Productions team (Metal; A Headbangers story and Global Metal).

Flight 666 documents the first leg of Maiden’s legendary SOMEWHERE BACK IN TIME WORLD TOUR, which took them 50,000 miles round the planet playing 23 concerts on five continents in just 45 days. One of the stars of the movie is the band’s customised Boeing 757, Ed Force One, which carried the band, all their crew 12 tons of stage equipment and was piloted by Airline Captain and singer Bruce Dickinson. The movie gives a close up inside the scenes look at what happened on and off stage, when Maiden gave full access to the film crew for the first time ever, and contains some of the most spectacular live footage yet seen of Maiden. If you want to know what it is like to be part of the most adventurous tour in Rock history, you can’t miss seeing this. Taking you from Mumbai to Santiago, LA to Sydney, Tokyo to San Paolo and all points between, through exhaustion and fan pandemonium, travelling with band and crew on the plane, to and from shows, in the bar and during leisure time, this really is Access All Areas.
