Tim Rice (“Jesus Christ Superstar,” “Evita”) makes his long-awaited return to
the musical spotlight as Fathom Events and Omniverse Vision present the
legendary lyricist’s stage adaptation of “From Here to Eternity.” This will
mark the first time that Fathom Events and Omniverse vision have partnered to
capture a stage production, which took place in spring 2014 at the Shaftesbury
Theatre in London. This three-day special presentation will be shown in select
U.S. cinemas on Thursday, October 2 at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, October 5 at 12:55
p.m. and Tuesday, October 7 at 7:30 p.m., all local time. The acclaimed
production will be making its Broadway debut in 2015, but theater aficionados
won’t want to miss their chance to catch this magnificent musical in a
larger-than-life, big screen experience first. The three fall showings of
“From Here to Eternity” will also feature approximately 20 minutes of
behind-the-scenes and making-of footage.

Tickets for “From Here to Eternity” are available at participating theater box
offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com. The event will be presented in
nearly 400 select movie theaters nationwide through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast
Network. For a complete list of theater locations and prices, visit the Fathom
Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

“I am delighted that our ambitious musical version of this magnificent story
is going to be available to cinemas across the U.S.,” said Tim Rice. “It’s an
epic tale with a score to match so it’s fantastic that our version will get a
big screen release.”

Adapted from James Jones' 1951 WW2 classic novel, and set in the South
Pacific, “From Here to Eternity” is a gripping tale of illicit love and army
life set in 1941 Hawaii, immediately prior to the attacks on Pearl Harbor.
Having recently transferred to the base, troubled Private Prewitt (Robert
Lonsdale) falls for Lorene (Siubhan Harrison), the kind-hearted escortclub
girl, while simultaneously his platoon sergeant, Warden (Darius Campbell),
embarkson a dangerousaffair with his commanding officer’s wife, Karen
(Rebecca Thornhill), setting the lives of both men on a course they cannot
control. As war approaches, the worldsof the fourlovers and the soldiers of
G Company are dramatically ripped apart.

Captured over two nights and directed for the screen by Nick Morris (“Les
Miserables 25th Anniversary Concert” and “Phantom of the Opera 25th
Anniversary Concert”), the production was adapted for the stage by Tim Rice
(lyrics), Stuart Brayson (music) and Bill Oakes (book). Rice has worked in
music, theatre and films since 1965 with productions including “Joseph and the
Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” “Jesus Christ Superstar” and “Evita.” He later
won two Oscars working with Disney on “The Lion King” and “Aladdin.”

“Fathom Events is absolutely delighted to give U.S. audiences the first
opportunity to experience ‘From Here to Eternity’ in movie theaters before it
is even available on Broadway,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president
of Fathom Events. “Musical theater fans are in for an evening they won’t soon
forget with what Tim Rice has created.”
