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

Don't miss this rare opportunity to see D.A. Pennebaker’s classic fly-on-the-wall documentary following Bob Dylan’s 1965 tour of England—screening at our cinema for the first time. Decades from now, musicians and the filmmakers who trail them will still be striving to achieve a fraction of the gritty iconic status that this film embodies. Dylan is exquisitely impenetrable here, always wary of how his persona, his art and his fame are framed. Yet paradoxically, Pennebaker’s film achieves a rare level of intimacy with its elusive subject. This film captures a pivotal time for both Dylan and the wider zeitgeist as he transformed from just another folk singer into defining figure of the 1960s for so many.

Arrive early as DJ Moe Berg spins for one hour prior to the start of the screening.
