The theatrical version of The Eras Tour was released on October 13, 2023. It allowed Swifties who missed the chance to buy tickets an opportunity to experience the acclaimed concert for themselves. The movie version of the concert was released to universal acclaim, with critics praising the cinematography, styling, and Swift’s spectacular musical performances across her different eras; it was the highest-rated musical movie of 2023 (via Rotten Tomatoes).

One of the few criticisms the theatrical version received was the final run-time compared to the live concerts. The theatrical version of the concert has a running screen time of 2 hours and 45 minutes, significantly shorter than the actual live concert which lasts over 3 hours. The run time of the theatrical version resulted in some of Taylor Swift’s most iconic performances being cut from the final product, severely disappointing many of her fans.
