Bowie died on Monday following an 18-month battle with cancer. He was 69.

The voice and mind behind hit songs such as Space Oddity, Let's Dance, Heroes, and Starman, Bowie also showcased his talents in the acting world.

He starred in Christopher Nolan’s 2006 film The Prestige, and more famously Labyrinth, a 1986 fantasy movie.

Wellington's Firefly Cinemas received a huge number of requests to show Labyrinth.

Marketing Director Brady Dyer said: "Labyrinth has always been on our list of movies we want to bring to the community in a drive-in cinema capacity. After hearing of David Bowie's final struggle with cancer we decided now would be the perfect opportunity to screen Labyrinth, as a well to celebrate Bowie's extensive career in the entertainment industry."

Sales of Bowie’s music have surged around the globe since the news of his death.
