Whether you're new to "Kinky Boots" or have been a long-time fan of the Broadway musical, you've probably seen the iconic, red, knee-high boots in commercials or promo posters. But did you know that the floundering shoe factory in the show made many more sexy shoes than just the ones we associate it with? And now is your chance to see them on the big screen.

Filmed at the Adelphi Theatre in London, "Kinky Boots" arrives in movie theaters nationwide June 25 and 29 only. In addition to the full production, audiences will enjoy an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the story of “Kinky Boots” and never-before-seen footage from the record-breaking Broadway run, which closed last month after more than six years and 2,500 performances.

"Kinky Boots" is a Tony, Grammy, and Olivier Award-winning musical from pop icon Cyndi Lauper and legendary playwright Harvey Fierstein, directed and choreography by Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell and based on the film written by Geoff Deane and Tim Firth. It opened on Broadway on April 4, 2013, and ran for over six years.

During that run, many famous people after the original cast helped tell the story about a struggling Northampton shoe factory that survived thanks to serving an "underserved niche market." That market? A women's boot that can be comfortable for a man. Check out some of these celebrities you may have missed in these all-star roles and learn how you still have your chance to see a filmed stage production of "Kinky Boots" in movie theatres.

Soon, The Northampton Chronicle & Echo reports, the factory home of WJ Brookes was looking to go the way of other nearby buildings, which had all been turned into apartments.
