Spandau Ballet's film Soul Boys of the Western World will be broadcast live in a one-off satellite premiere screening.
The film will be shown on September 30, before going on general release in cinemas across the UK and Ireland on October 3.
In even more exciting news, following the premiere screening, Spandau Ballet will reunite on stage for the first time since 2010.
Lauren Laverne will host a question and answer session with the band and director George Hencken, before the group performs some of their classic anthems. The event will be broadcast to cinemas across the UK and Ireland.
Soul Boys of the Western World explores the band's journey through the 1980s and beyond, and looks at how one small gathering of outsiders helped to shape the entire world's view of music and fashion.
The film combines newsreel footage with never-before-seen video from the band's personal archive and candid interviews with the band members.
Spandau Ballet sold over 25 million records and scored 23 hit singles and a number of multi-platinum albums, becoming one of the most successful groups of the '80s.
The band reformed in 2009 for a sold-out tour, making the announcement on board the HMS Belfast in London.
Spandau Ballet release a new album collection including three new songs on October 13, with a soundtrack album for Soul Boys of the Western World also being released.
Tickets for Soul Boys of the Western World go on sale tomorrow (August 19) at 9am on spandauballetthemovie.com.
