The Strand is prleased to bring back this musical fantasy about the fantastical human story of Elton John's breakthrough years.  There's no better way to experience this stunning film than on The Strand's 25' screen in 45 speaker surround-sound!

One of the biggest challenges that Elton John faced in trying to get this project moving forward is that many producers told him they wanted to make a PG-13 rated film. John told them all the same thing: that he had not led a PG-13 life.

When an Elton John biopic was first considered many years ago, Justin Timberlake was seriously considered to play the lead role. Timberlake was hand-picked by Elton John to portray him in the music video for his single Elton John: This Train Don't Stop There Anymore (2001).

When the this specific project was greenlit, Tom Hardy was attached to star, but as it languished in development heck for three years, Hardy's schedule was too conflicting, and Taron Egerton successfully auditioned for the role.  Egerton sang all of his songs in the film, and wore 53 different pair of glasses.

Elton John told Taron Egerton to not copy him too much in the film, and find his own version of the role.

The exterior footage of early 1970s LA during the Troubadour club era was stock 35 mm footage that was digitally cleaned up. It would have been far too impractical and expensive to redecorate parts of Sunset Boulevard in a 1970s style just for the few seconds of film required.
