Join us at Circle Cinema on Thursday, May 25th at 6pm for a special one-night, one-showing only screening of “LONG STRANGE TRIP: THE UNTOLD STORY OF THE GRATEFUL DEAD.”
Directed by Amir Bar-Levi (“The Tillman Story”) and executive-produced by Martin Scorsese, “Long Strange Trip: The Untold Story of the Grateful Dead” is the first full-length documentary to explore the fiercely independent vision, perpetual innovation, and uncompromising commitment to their audience that made the Bay Area band one of the most influential musical groups of their generation. The 30-year odyssey of the Grateful Dead was the most unlikely success story in rock ‘n’ roll history. Famously averse to publicity and seemingly incapable of recording radio-friendly hits, they flouted music-industry convention by giving their live music away to a global network of tape traders and becoming the highest-grossing concert act in America through word of mouth alone.

“Although devoted Deadheads will be the prime target audience, Long Strange Trip also provides a detailed primer for curious rock fans who never bought into the cult around the band.” – Hollywood Reporter
