For months now, there’s been talk of a film based on Beyoncé’s Renaissance World Tour.

And now that the tour has come to a close, with the final stop in Kansas City, the concert ended with the announcement via a video from the giant screen on stage that the film will premiere in theaters Dec. 1.

Tickets are available now for showings at several theater chains in North America.

AMC Theatres and Parkwood Entertainment, the singer’s film company and record label, released details after the concert ended at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium.

“Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé” chronicles the process of crafting the 56-show, record-breaking world tour, from the first concert in Stockholm in May to the finale in Kansas City on Sunday.

Variety says the movie is expected to include elements from the live shows and a documentary-style account of making the “Renaissance” album and building out the tour.

The concerts were seen by more than 2.7 million fans around the world, many of whom anxiously watched a clock on the Parkwood website count down to the time of the movie announcement.
