Rami Malek at The Castro’s Screening of Bohemian Rhapsody

Bohemian Rhapsody at The Castro

The Castro Theatre in San Francisco was recently the setting for a special screening of 20th Century Fox’s new film, Bohemian Rhapsody.

Rami Malek, who plays Freddie Mercury in the foot-stomping celebration of legendary British rock band Queen, attended with co-stars Joseph Mazzello, who plays Queen bass guitarist John Deacon, and Gwilym Lee, who took on the role of Queen lead guitarist Brian May.

The film opens nationwide on November 2, 2018, but Malek is already being praised by critics, with some mentioning him as a possible Oscar contender for his bold, passionate performance.
