When it comes to music, there’s nothing better than seeing a live performance. But when time or ticket prices don’t allow it, there are still concert films.
The new LOOK Dine-In Cinemas Chandler launches a four-week concert film series tonight, Wednesday, February 12.
Tonight’s offering is The Rolling Stones: Sweet Summer Sun – Hyde Park live. It is made up of footage from a 2013 Stones concert in London. More than 100,000 fans flocked to the park for two outdoor concerts to watch the legendary rockers perform selections from 50 years of hits. The band was even joined by former guitarist Mick Taylor for a special appearance on two songs.
On Wednesday February 19, you will be able to discover ZZ Top: this small group from Texas (2019), which chronicles how three eccentric young bluesmen – Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard – became one of the biggest and most beloved bands on the planet. The film includes candid interviews with the band, animations, testimonials from celebrity fans and a performance at the iconic Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, Texas, shot exclusively for the documentary.
Next up on Wednesday, January 26, is one local music fans won’t want to miss. The 2014 movie Super Cheating Alice Cooper tells the story of our very own Vincent Furnier, who rose from a high school band in West Phoenix to the pinnacle of shock rock stardom. The story is told in the form of a “doc opera”, a mashup of documentary and rock opera that combines audio interviews with concerts, television appearances, film cameos, newspaper headlines, magazines and other visual elements.
Finally, on Wednesday, February 2, catch INXS: Live Baby Live at Wembley Stadium (2019). The fully restored classic concert film is available in HD and 4K for the very first time. The film captured the INXS broadcast on July 13, 1991, a blockbuster event attended by 72,000 fans. The Wembley gig was the latest in a series of 12-month world dates on the band’s record-breaking X-Factor tour.
All movies start at 7 p.m. Tickets are $12 for general admission and $9 for seniors. LOOK Dine-In Cinemas Chandler, which opened in October, is located at 1 West Chandler Boulevard, Chandler. Call 480-608-4191 or visit lookcinemas.com.
