LOS ANGELES, Feb. 2 (UPI) -- Teenage singer Miley Cyrus has expanded the scope of her alter-ego, pop sensation Hannah Montana, into U.S. theaters for just one week.

After finding great success with the Disney Channel series "Hannah Montana" and an accompanying U.S. musical tour, Cyrus' two personalities can now be seen on the big screen in a 3-D concert film, The Boston Globe reported Saturday.

The limited release film features Cyrus performing as Montana for a series of the most popular songs from her 55-city "Best of Both Worlds" tour. Cyrus then sings her own music for the movie's second half.

The concert film, like the U.S. tour, also includes a lavish stage complete with multiple video screens and pyrotechnics, along with an appearance from the tour's accompanying band, the Jonas Brothers.

Yet unlike the tour, the concert film allows the young fans of "Montana" to see back stage as the camera follows Cyrus as the young singer prepares for her performances, the Globe reported.
