One of the most iconic performances in the history of modern music, David Bowie’s retirement of his Ziggy Stardust alter ego in front of 5,000 fans at London’s Hammersmith Odeon was captured on film by award-winning director D.A. Pennebaker on July 3, 1973. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of this event, the original, uncut version of the film has been restored in 4K and with a 5.1 theatrical mix and will feature never-before-seen performances with legendary guitar player Jeff Beck. ZIGGY STARDUST AND THE SPIDERS FROM MARS: THE MOTION PICTURE 50TH ANNIVERSARY is the closest audiences will come to being there on that unforgettable night 50 years ago.

"A colorful snapshot of an early chapter in the story of an accomplished performer."

— Gary Dowell, Dallas Morning News

"Pennebaker's Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars captures Bowie at perhaps his purest, punkiest rock 'n' roll peak."

— Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star

"An excellent example of its genre, with Pennebaker capturing the excitement of what was a very special, emotion-charged occasion."

— Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

"The result miraculously resurrects a seminal moment in rock history, elevating Ziggy Stardust into the landmark cultural event it always should have been."

— Nathan Rabin, AV Club

"The moment where Bowie announces that this is 'the last show that we'll ever do', to the screams and groans of the audience (most of whom assumed it was he, not Ziggy, who was retiring) remains utterly bracing."

— Gwilym Mumford, Guardian
