Olivier Award winner and Grammy Award nominee Elaine Paige's 50th anniversary farewell concert I'm Still Here will be presented in cinemas across the United States and Canada by ScreenLive beginning today, May 12. The sold-out concert, filmed at London's Royal Albert Hall on October 22, 2014, is being presented on the big screen.

The concert is followed by special footage of a live Q&A captured in London on April 23, 2014. The concert features Paige, dubbed "The First Lady of British Musical Theatre," along with guest tenor Gardar Thor Cortes and the 60-piece BBC Concert Orchestra, performing highlights from her 50-year career.
