Joanne Connor from Redcliffe, Brisbane, never considered herself a Queen fan.

However, after attending a viewing of Bohemian Rhapsody last year, she was completely hooked. 

Joanne has now clocked up 108 trips to the cinema to view the Queen biopic, achieving the record title of most cinema productions attended – same film.


The film run time is two-hours and 13 minutes, meaning Joanne has clocked up 240 hours watching the film in cinema, equating to 10 whole days.

This doesn’t include the 291 times she has watched the movie at home, either!

Despite the many hours Joanne has spent watching the iconic movie that depicts the life of Queen’s lead singer Freddie Mercury, she apparently still gets the same feeling every time, claiming she watches it every night. 

I love this movie - it is the best I have ever seen. It is such a ‘feel good’ movie and takes those of us that weren’t there right to Wembley Live Aid!!  Also doing it to continue the legacy of the legend, Freddie Mercury and the music of Queen!

Since falling in love with the film and the band, Joanne has met band members Brian May and Roger Taylor backstage at their performance in Brisbane. 

They wanted to meet the superfan as much as she wanted to meet them!  

Joanne did have plans to see the band perform again on the Gold Coast and was planning a trip to the UK to see them perform at the O2. 

No doubt she will continue to watch the film regularly before and after. 

News of Joanne’s impressive new record tile even caught the attention of lead actor Rami Malek, who portrayed Freddie Mercury in the film, and the film’s production company, 20th Century Fox, who sent her a signed copy of the film to recognise here incredible achievement. 

Joanne broke the previous record achieved by Anthony "Nem" Mitchell (USA) in Charlotte, North Carolina in 2018 - a Marvel fan who visited his local cinema to see Avengers: Infinity War 103 times.
