Rockhampton Zoo has also attracted attention, this time on the other side of the globe.

Photos of our very own chimpanzee, Capri, at the zoo have appeared in De Telegraaf in Holland.

Why we want more Rami Malek

WE want it all.

And we want it now.

Yes, I just threaded Queen's 1989 hit, I Want It All into this piece.

Bohemian Rhapsody, the acclaimed biopic on rock band Queen and their legendary frontman, Freddie Mercury has returned to BCC Rockhampton.

Following a brief absence from our cinema, the film was quickly ushered back onto our screens after it won Best Picture this week at the 2019 Golden Globe Awards.

And Rami Malek also took home Best Actor for his breath-taking performance as the androgynous innovator, Mercury.

BCC Rockhampton's assistant general manager, Brandon Lees confirmed the film's return.

"We wanted to bring it back for the people who unfortunately missed it as there was also consistent word of mouth about how great it is and how everyone has been loving it,” he said.

And movie-goers of all ages have enjoyed the experience of re-discovering the story of these iconic musicians.

"It's no surprise that the reach of people who have loved Queen is never ending so we've had all demographics come and enjoy the film, and it's great to see that more people are interested in the story of Queen and Freddie Mercury,” he said.

"We expect to hear it all over the Oscar season as well so we won't be surprised if it's still here for another week after Wednesday, January 16.”

So if you want to check out the film on the big screen, you better be quick.

Bohemian Rhapsody will be screened at BCC Rockhampton tonight at 6pm and 8.50pm.

Currently, nightly sessions have been scheduled up until Wednesday.
