Event Details

Socially distanced, limited capacity screening.

Jeff Stein’s pioneering rock music documentary combines promotional footage, television appearances and production crew- and fan-shot footage of rock legends The Who — on tour, in the studio and in their daily lives from 1964 until just before drummer Keith Moon’s death in September 1978. The film includes historic performances at Woodstock, guitar smashing on “The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour” and career-spanning hits from “My Generation” to “Pinball Wizard” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again.” It also features candid interviews with Townshend and the greatest live performance in the history of rock ‘n’ roll — “A Quick One, While He’s Away” at “The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus.”
