Inside Beyoncé's ‘Renaissance' Concert Film World Premiere with Lizzo, Halle Bailey, Janelle Monáe and More

Beyoncé stunned Hollywood on Saturday night, when she gave a covert world premiere of her concert film, "Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé," at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.

The film, which follows her Renaissance World Tour, will be distributed in the United States on December 1 by major theater chains such as AMC, Regal, and Cinemark.

Fans of Beyoncé have pointed out that December 1 is also World AIDS Day; the singer dedicated her "Renaissance" album to her late cousin Johnny (who she refers to as "Uncle Johnny"), who died of AIDS-related sickness.

The premiere's details were kept under wraps, with guests only being invited with a save-the-date that specified the screening's 7 p.m. start time and a "cozy opulence" dress requirement. 

The site, which turned out to be the Goldwyn Theater, was revealed less than 24 hours before the festivities began.

Guests were asked to take a ride share to a Beverly Hills address, where they would be guided to the screening site. 

The "chrome carpet" began around 5:30 p.m. Lizzo, Janelle Monáe, and "The Little Mermaid" star Halle Bailey were among those in attendance.

While Beyoncé made an unexpected cameo at Taylor Swift's concert film debut in Los Angeles, the "Karma" singer is presently on tour in South America and is unlikely to attend Queen B's celebration.
