Sunday Screenings – The Last Waltz

  • Sunday | 25.05.14

  • Band on the Wall, Manchester

Band On The Wall’s Sunday Screenings; iconic music films shown in Manchester’s legendary music venue, over one of the best sound systems in the city.

This Sunday’s film will be The Last Waltz – Martin Scorsese’s documentary of The Band‘s legendary 1976 final performance featuring guests Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, Van Morrison, Ringo Starr, Neil Diamond, Joni Mitchell, The Staples and Emmylou Harris.

The Last Waltz is at once a show featuring some of the greatest rock performers of their generation and a bittersweet look back at an era that was just beginning to fade.

As Scorsese guides the group through interview segments discussing their 15 years together, these relatively young men sound like battle-weary survivors. But The Band were in splendid form for this show, and their multiple guest stars pulled out all the stops. The all-star camera crew and superb stereo sound mix create what is considered to be of the best-looking and sounding rock films ever, as the opening credit says, play this movie loud!

Doors open at 5pm for this event, with Spice Master Giles in the kitchen serving a gourmet ‘Rice ‘n’ Three’ curry menu all evening.

The Screening will begin at 7pm.
