Beyoncé made a surprise appearance at the premiere of Taylor Swift’s concert tour movie Wednesday night in Los Angeles — prompting Swift to compare hanging out with Bey to “an actual fairytale.”
The film titled Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour screened at the AMC theater in The Grove shopping center.
The premiere was so massive that management made the rare decision to close the upscale mall for the entire day.
Several outlets reported The Grove’s billionaire owner, Rick Caruso, promised to reimburse the mall’s tenants for lost revenue because of the closure.

TMZ reported security was super tight and 2,200 fans received invitations to the red carpet event.
The “Anti-Hero” songstress posted a Boomerang video with the “Break My Soul” singer on Instagram, showing them sharing a tub of popcorn.
Taylor included a caption praising Beyoncé for her “generosity.”
“I’m so glad I’ll never know what my life would’ve been like without @beyonce‘s influence,” Swift wrote. “The way she’s taught me and every artist out here to break rules and defy industry norms. Her generosity of spirit. Her resilience and versatility. She’s been a guiding light throughout my career and the fact that she showed up tonight was like an actual fairytale.”
The legendary pop stars were both dressed to the nines.
Swift, 33, wore a pale blue, quilted Oscar de la Renta ballgown. Beyoncé, 42, made a grand entrance in a chrome breastplate over a black bodysuit.
Taylor Swift: The Eras Tour was scheduled to arrive in AMC theaters on Oct. 13.
But there’s been so much excitement over the film, Swift announced it would open a day early in the U.S. and Canada, with additional showings being added throughout the weekend.
The movie rang up $100 million in global pre-release ticket sales, according to USA Today.
It also shattered the record for first-day ticket sales at AMC theaters after $26 million in pre-release sales in the first 24 hours, as previously reported. The last record of $16.9 million was set by Spider-Man No Way Home in 2021.
Beyoncé is releasing a concert movie in theaters in December.
Earlier this month, the Houston native announced her Renaissance World Tour movie would be released on Dec 1.
