Description

Bob Dylan on Screen: A cinematic tribute to the iconic troubadour, in conjunction with our Curious Minds course on Bob Dylan running May 19–June 23.

Dylan's performances in this Martin Scorsese-directed classic helped cement its status as one of the greatest concert films of all time. Showing up, in Robbie Robertson's memorable description, like "a Christ in a white hat," Dylan unleashes killer renditions of "Forever Young" and "Baby, Let Me Follow You Down" and reminds us of his majestic bond with the Americana obsessives who revolutionized popular music in the 60s and 70s. Come for Dylan's spirited performance and stay for turns from Neil Young, Van Morrison, Joni Mitchell, The Band and kick off the summer in style with a rock n' roll classic!

Co-presented by Sonic Boom.
