The new documentary about The Rolling Stones, Crossfire Hurricane, will simultaneously premiere at a host of cinemas in the UK and Ireland on October 18.

The film, directed by Brett Morgen, documents the band's career from their early road trips and gigs in the 1960s, via the release of 1972's seminal 'Exile On Main Street' right up to present day.

Over 250 cinemas across the country will screen the movie live from the 2012 London Film Festival in London's Leicester Square. The multi-cinema screenings will also show Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood's red carpet interviews as well as an interview with Morgen.

Tickets for the screenings are on sale now at: crossfire-hurriance.com. The screenings begin at 6.15pm (BST) and will run for 150 minutes.

The movie will feature stacks of unseen footage of the band, including commentaries from Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood and former Stones Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor.

Director Morgen said: "Crossfire Hurricane invites the audience to experience firsthand the Stones' nearly mythical journey from outsiders to rock and roll royalty. This is not an academic history lesson. Crossfire Hurricane allows the viewer to experience the Stones' journey from a unique vantage point. It's an aural and visual rollercoaster ride."

Crossfire Hurricane will go on general release in November.
