Diana Ross: Her life, love and legacy film gets UK screening dates to mark her 75th birthday

The film is part of Ross' Diamond Diana 75th birthday celebrations.

A new film celebrating Diana Ross' life and music career will be screened across the UK on March 26 to celebrate her 75th birthday. 

Diana Ross: Her Life, Love and Legacy includes never before seen footage and an exclusive-to-cinema introduction from her family and friends including daughter Tracee Ellis Ross.  

The film - directed by the award-winning Steve Binder, executive produced by Ross and produced by music/media producer Spencer Proffer - also covers the iconic free concert she put on in New York's Central Park in 1983. Considered one of the most important events in music history, the show had to be abandoned halfway through due to heavy rain, with Ross returning the next day to finish the show. 

"I envisioned a dream and that’s what I created over those two days in Central Park," she said. "I picked a goal, and then imagined all the details. I believe imagination is magical, that we can think of something and bring it into being.”

The film will be screened in over 250 cinemas across the UK and Ireland on March 26. See the full list of venues and buy tickets here.

The movie is a part of Ross' year-long Diamond Diana celebrations to mark her 75th birthday. She recently kicked off the celebrations with a special birthday performance at the Grammy Awards. 

Diana Ross is one of the world's most successful artists of all time. In the UK, she has racked up 58 Top 40 singles and 39 Top 40 albums on the Official Chart. Look back at her complete UK chart history here.
