"The Webber-Rice score and the complex interpretations of Christ and Judas win out over any shortcomings." ★★★★ Matt Brunson, Film Frenzy
"Jewison, a director of large talent, has taken a piece of commercial shlock and turned it into a Biblical movie with dignity." ★★★★ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times
Join us for a special screening of Jesus Christ Superstar followed by Q&A with Sir Tim Rice the legendary English lyricist and author.
With the approach of the 50th anniversary of Jesus Christ Superstar we are thrilled to announce that we will host a special screening of this masterpiece. Sir Tim Rice will take to the stage to discuss the making of the film, the sound track was recorded right here at Olympic Sound Studios.
Sir Tim Rice has worked in music, theatre and films since 1965 when he met Andrew Lloyd Webber, a fellow struggling songwriter. Rather than pursue Tim’s ambitions to write rock or pop songs they turned their attention to Andrew’s obsession - musical theatre. Their works include - Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar and Evita (the soundtrack for the latter also recorded at Olympic Studios!)
JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR is a musical, from 1973, in which a group of performers stage an elaborate production depicting the final weeks of the life of Jesus Christ.
