One Night Only: The Grateful Dead Movie 40th Anniversary
We're shaking things up in movie theaters across the good old U.S. of A. once again! Gather up your favorite Grateful guys and gals and meet us on April 20th at 7 p.m. local time for a celebration of the 40th anniversary of The Grateful Dead Movie. In addition to the feature presentation, we'll be screening an exclusive look at footage from the upcoming Grateful Dead documentary, Long Strange Trip, executive produced by Martin Scorsese and directed by Amir Bar-Lev. We've also got a never-before-seen mini-documentary about the band’s legendary May 8, 1977 show at Cornell University, including new interviews with fans who were in attendance. My, oh, my! Join us, won't you?
Watch the trailer here.
Saw the movie @ Concord Mills just north of Charlotte, NC. Pretty good turnout w/ lots of fun ppl. The movie was not the same as the disc & several songs were missing. The volume was too low so I talked w/ the manager who refused to address the situation; they had been pretty responsive at the last meet-up. Meh.
Didn't appear there was any enhancement to the film for the showing, at least compared to the HD treatment given the DVD a few years ago...am I wrong on this?
I am surprised once again that NO theaters in Marin or Sonoma Counties just North of SF are offering screenings. I mean, it is only where ALL members of the Dead have lived or still live since forever! :D Not sure I will be making the journey in to the city just for this screening. If it was more local - like at the sweet downtown theater in Fairfax - I would so be in. ;-) And surprised that Terrapin Crossroads doesn't do something like this! I would love to dance to a show with Jerry in the Grate Room!!!
I just checked to see what seats are left at my local theater. They ALL are! It's a very small theater and all seats are reserved, as these are the large reclining seats. Not one ticket has been sold!
I just don't get it. There must be a load of shows that have recorded video. Sure, they are from the 90's, since that's when the concept of large screens at concert venues really kicked in. Still, wouldn't that be a more interesting thing to attend than something we've all seen several times? Many of us have home theaters now that aren't too much smaller than the little boxes in some of the multi-screen complexes. Since most of us own a copy of this film, why bother?
I've been to each of these screenings (as well as the three "Fare Thee Well" showings), but I think I'll skip this one. If there was going to be a nearly full house, it could be fun, but it's looking more like a private screening. People seem to be staying away in droves.
Grabbed my tix online today, oh yeah! Meet me in Saint Louis!
Looking forward to seeing another showing / meet & greet as I've been to everyone.
Hopefully they will update / add showings in either Racine / Kenosha WI.
Nicely done guy. I really enjoyed the photo's and your Facebook page which i liked / following. Looking forward to updates and hearing this show... I can't wait.
Who's going where? I notice the theater lineup is a bit different hereabouts.
looks like they haven't made tickets avail anywhere yet
