The screening of the Academy Award-winning animated film from Sony Pictures Animation will be accompanied by a live orchestra, band, and turntables playing music from the score and soundtrack. The film follows Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, who after being bitten by a radioactive spider gains Spider-Man-like powers. The film was directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman, written by Phil Lord and Rothman, and produced by Lord, Chris Miller, Avi Arad, Amy Pascal, and Christina Steinberg.

Original music was composed by multiple Golden Globe nominee Daniel Pemberton, who will be on hand for the world premiere concert in Brooklyn. In a statement, he said “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is one of my favorite score scores I’ve ever written. I always had a dream the first place this would ever be heard would be Miles’ home – Brooklyn. So, I am ridiculously excited we get to perform the world’s very first Spider-Verse concert in the iconic borough where the story begins, bringing together on stage a full orchestra with a band, synths, AND a set of turntables for the world premiere performance this March.” 

The film received widespread praise and attention for its visual style, characters, story, voice acting, and soundtrack. The highly anticipated sequel, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is scheduled for a theatrical debut in June 2023. The Kings Theatre is a live performance theatre in Brooklyn with a seating capacity of 3,200. In 1929 it was opened by Loew’s Theatres as a movie palace. The venue then closed in 1977, sitting empty until a complete renovation began in 2010.

Tickets for the world premiere of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse on March 17, 2023, are on sale now.
