1977: Swedish movie premiere for ABBA
'The Movie', ABBA's feature film, has now had its premiere in Sweden as well. The members of the group themselves were the guests of honor on the opening night at the China theatre in Stockholm. Crush barriers had been set up to keep pushy fans at a distance and each member of ABBA was escorted separately by a police officer. They walked into the venue on a red, stately carpet, accompanied by the happy music from a student brass band. The movie was screened in front of a packed cinema with 1200 fans. On the picture above, Agnetha, Björn, Anni-Frid and Benny are presented with an award by their Swedish colleague musician 'Clabbe' and on the other picture we see Agnetha surrounded by manager Stikkan Anderson and 'Movie' director Lasse Hallström at the after party.
