Grateful Dead Night at the Movies

posted by Nell Minow

Deadheads, get ready to have your world rocked!  On April 19, Grateful Dead Second Annual Meet-Up At The Movies 2012 will take audiences on a flashback trip to the summer of ‘89 for a one-night in-theater concert event. Recorded July 18, 1989, at the Alpine Valley Music Theatre, this never-before-seen concert is directly from the Grateful Dead vault. This iconic concert, featuring Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Brent Mydland, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart, was recorded the night after the Dead’s legendary Downhill from Here performance in East Troy, Wis. Dead Heads in attendance will experience the two-and-a-half hour concert in its entirety, including fan favorites, as well as a rare split of “Sugar Magnolia,” “Dear Mr. Fantasy,” and “Hey Jude Medley.” Before the start of the concert, movie theater audiences will also be treated to a slideshow of rare photos of the band by Jim Anderson and John Cantamessa, along with a previously unreleased live track recorded in Hartford, Conn. in July of 1974. Additionally, before the show time, Fathom will feature a handful of the top submissions from the recent Dead Covers Project, which encouraged fans to upload videos of their covers of Dead tracks to Dead.net. This is the second annual Grateful Dead fan meet-up following last year’s successful event, which sold out in several locations across the U.S.

Tickets for Grateful Dead Second Annual Meet-Up At The Movies 2012 are available at participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com. For a complete list of theater locations and prices, visit the NCM Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).
