Taylor Swift took to Instagram on the last day of August and announced the release of a film version of her Eras Tour. 

“The Eras Tour has been the most meaningful, electric experience of my life so far and I’m overjoyed to tell you that it’ll be coming to the big screen soon,” she shared via Instagram. “Starting Oct 13th, you’ll be able to experience the concert film in theaters in North America! Tickets are on sale now.”

Though there has been major positive feedback on everything related to Taylor Swift, her decision to release her concert as a film has received backlash. Some fans on TikTok have expressed concern that the people who attend the movie will be too loud or obnoxious for them to enjoy the film. I believe that the reason for the backlash is because fans do not truly understand what Taylor Swift is attempting to do by releasing this movie.

This concert film, unlike her film on Netflix titled “Miss Americana,” is not a documentary. Fans should not expect any content exclusive to the movie, like footage from backstage. The film is going to be like her other film: “Taylor Swift Reputation Stadium Tour,” meaning that it’s simply going to be footage from her tour. If you have ever watched her Reputation tour on Netflix, you know that it is not possible to sit still. Swift expressed on Instagram that, “Eras attire, friendship bracelets, singing and dancing encouraged.”

Due to the extra cameras at Taylor Swift’s Los Angeles shows, many fans assume the film is a recording of those shows. If Taylor Swift chooses to include the surprise songs in the film, not a single Los Angeles option would disappoint – “I Can See You,” “Maroon,” “Our Song,” “You Are In Love,” “Death By A Thousand Cuts” and “You’re On Your Own, Kid.”

If fans are looking to watch the concert film in theaters, they should buy tickets quickly. The movie is being shown in three theaters only: AMC, Cinemark, and Regal (with AMC being the main distributor). 

Not only is the film only available in limited theaters, but tickets are also selling out fast. The movie brought in $26 million of ticket sales the first day they were available. Almost every single theater around Kingwood is sold out on the premiere date, with the only tickets left being terrible seats like the front row.

The movie provides people who were not able to afford the pricey Eras Tour tickets with a chance to get a very similar experience. Even if you were one of the fortunate people who survived the “Great War,” the movie gives you an opportunity to live The Eras Tour with your friends.
