Ain’t no mountain high enough to keep Diana Ross from getting to you on her 75th birthday.
The legendary Motown diva, who hits the three-quarters-of-a-century mark on Tuesday, will be celebrating by bringing her epic 1983 Central Park concert film to about 700 theaters across the country on her birthday and Thursday.
In New York City, “Diana Ross: Her Life and Legacy” — featuring “Diana Ross Live in Central Park” — will be playing at the AMC Empire 25, the AMC Loews Kip Bay 15, the Regal Cinemas Union Square 14 and the Regal Cinemas Battery Park 11 in Manhattan.
In Queens, screenings are set at United Artists Kaufman Astoria 14 and College Point Multiplex Cinemas. Brooklynites can watch the film at the United Artists Court Street 12 & RPX and the UA Sheepshead Bay 14 IMAX & RPX, and Staten Islanders can head to the United Artists 16 & RPX.
All screenings take place at 7 p.m., so Miss Ross can reach out and touch all of her fans at the very same time.
In addition to a remastered film of the landmark Central Park concert — a free show on the Great Lawn that was famously cut short by a lightning storm on July 21, 1983, and then rescheduled for the following day — the screening will include previously unseen footage and special messages from Ross’ five children. In fact, Tracee Ellis Ross, Diana’s daughter who stars on ABC’s “Black-ish,” gives the introduction.
Ross has been celebrating her birthday in Supreme style since launching her “Diamond Diana” Las Vegas residency and appearing in a special Grammy tribute in February.
She will be commemorating her 75th with a concert at the Hollywood Palladium on her actual birthday and will keep the party going at Radio City Music Hall on June 22.
This birthday is truly “The Happening” worthy of the icon that she is.
