For the first time ever, the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London will be open to the public to present a two week season of films scored at Abbey Road. As part of the Abbey Road Film Festival, the movie "Pink Floyd The Wall" will be screened in Studio 1, the world's largest purpose built recording studio.

The Festival marks the 25th anniversary of Abbey Road's involvement in the film scoring business. Studio 1 will become a cinema for the duration of the Festival, with a 350 seat capacity. There will be 3 screenings on each of the 16 days of the festival, with a selection of films scored at the Studios over the last quarter of a century, as well as a few other films associated with the Studios.

Ticket holders will be able to visit the famed Studio 2 where some of the greatest rock and pop recordings of all time have been made, from The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Radiohead, and beyond. Dark Side Of The Moon and Sgt Peppers are just two of the classic albums to have resonated off the studio walls during their creation.

They are also staging a photographic exhibition which "will contain treasures from the world of film and music."

The Abbey Road Film Festival will run from March 19th - April 3rd 2005, with "Pink Floyd - The Wall" being screened on March 23rd at 12pm, and March 26th, again at 12pm.
