August 1st - 8th Annual Meet-Up At The Movies

Come one, come all! On August 1st, we'll be bringing the boogie back to your favorite local moving picture house for the 8th Annual Grateful Dead Meet-Up at the Movies. This year's special cinema event is the full concert from July 7, 1989 at Philadelphia’s John F. Kennedy Stadium.

The final show at the historic venue, this one offers a peak snapshot of the Dead’s 1989 tour, where the band played to some of its biggest audiences ever, a result of the group’s only Top 40 hit, “Touch of Grey.” On this super-hot night (literally and figuratively), the Dead blazed through staples like "Hell In A Bucket" and "Scarlet Begonias," got in a few Blues, and pulled out a pair from the upcoming Built To Last- the aching ballad “Standing On The Moon” into the poignant “Blow Away,” a song co-written by keyboardist Brent Mydland, who sadly died a year later. And the last song ever performed at JFK Stadium? It was the Dead's cover of Dylan's "Knockin' On Heaven's Door."

Gather up your Grateful tribe and be sure to come on down early - we'll be revealing an exclusive look at the Dead's soon-to-be-announced 2018 boxed set.

Get your tickets here.

Looking Forward

I have to say, never seen or heard this show. My bad. Looking forward to MUAM, but someone on the thread mention sound. It is a bummer sound seems always to be low at venues. Had the wife speak to the manager at last movie house...lol...a bit louder.

A compilation of various filmed shows would be nice.

Peace out....

Meet up at the movies...

Beth and i have an issue that we hope can be worked out Before August 1st! The problem is we live in a little town of 2500 folks with one theater in town called The Ball theater here in Pageland South Carolina. The last two years we had to drive up to Charlotte only to be turned away for overcrowding or sold out events which completely bummed us and realized there wasn't enough theaters running this gem of an opportunity to see Y'all on the big screen without paying ticket prices of today!!! You guys know i work with GOD for the life on this planet with no pay, that's why Bill Graham got me on the trash crew because that's something i did anyhow for my favorite Band and planet around, it was the only way i could experience GODS house Band and we are so grateful for that experience... Lord like no other in this life... to go to church, the gym, the Dance, the Love, everything in a song played perfectly. All of our time goes to our Mother Lucille who has Dementia and we need to get out and have some fun too, we have a great babysitter for her when we go shopping once a month for food and stuff, all we need now is for Meet up at the movies to play close by that doesn't cost more than we can handle! Know that we Love You, that's never gonna change and Thanks for all that you are. Love to ALL, Stuart
ps... if Ball Theater can't provide, we are 16 miles south of Monroe NC and they have multiplex theaters just like the big cities Lol!!! We Love every One of YOU

You sure about limited video?

I haven't come here for a while but had to when I got the ad for this year's MUAM. I wondered if I was the only one to notice that they'll be showing something that we all have on DVD already. Apparently, I was NOT the only one to notice.

One poster talked about the limited video options available. Are there further details on that? As I understand it, these videos are simply the images projected on the overhead screens during the show. Once that idea took off, hardly a show happened where the cameras weren't in use. If only for the benefit of review to improve camera technique, it would be reasonable to think that a tape deck was running while the cameras were in operation.

If that is the case, there must be a great number of these shows gathering dust somewhere. Obviously, most of them would be from the '90s, but I don't think we'll be too judgmental after all these years with NO Jerry and NO Grateful Dead. Plus, if you put a 1990s Dead performance up against just about anything that's popular right now, I suspect the boys would be the clear victors.

So, is the statement about there being severely limited video based on knowledge or are you, like me, guessing? We're not going to change the minds of those in charge, but I am very curious about the quantity of archival video. Thanks!

sound system ratings

what i'd like to see is any of the MUAM at a theater with a kick-ass sound system turned up loud....last 2 i went to the volume was way too low and lousy sound...maybe there could be some ratings of which theaters are known to play it loud

Dead & Company newbies

Mary's comment is the best explanation there is for why they are playing Crimson White and Indigo instead of something we haven't seen. But they could still have played something we haven't seen before and shown something shiny and new for all of us. And I'll admit it too...I thought Brent was far and away their best full time keyboard player throughout his career. Keith was brilliant early, but fizzled out later.

I think maybe

there are a lot of folks coming along from the Dead & Company side for whom all this is shiny and new.

Also, I admit it, I'm fond of Brent.

Been there before...

This is a good show but come on, let's show some imagination and pick something unusual and different. we all have the sbd of this show (or the crimson white and indigo CD). I like these meet ups, but this was a lame choice.
