Description

This Film Should Be Played Loud: See new, classic and rare concert films on the big screen.

Called “the greatest rock film ever made,” this landmark documentary follows the Rolling Stones on their notorious 1969 tour of the United States. When 300,000 members of the ‘love generation’ collided with a few dozen Hell’s Angels at San Francisco’s Altamont Speedway, direct cinema pioneers David and Albert Maysles and Charlotte Zwerin immortalized on film the bloody clash that transformed a decade’s dreams into disillusionment.

Arrive early to kick off the evening with a DJ set by Moe Berg.
