Going to 6/11 showing in Great Barrington.
The option of waiting a whole day is no option at all in my opinion.
No, if other people are gathered in a theater eagerly awaiting the first public showing of footage never seen before of the RTR, and eating it up while you don’t.....well, that should be anathema to anyone here.

I’d feel terrible if I had to miss the 6/11 showing.
The 6/12 Netflix showing is for repeated viewing.
This.
This is going to be an event.

I’ll bet I’m not the only one hERe who thinks this way.
I saw Renaldo & Clara during its hyper-abbreviated release, and I didn’t wait forty years to miss the 6/11 screening.

Can you tell I’m stoked?

I'm going to get tickets for the Chicago screening today. I'm so hyped up for this, especially when it wasn't so long ago that Trouble No More came out.

The funny thing is that I've been following the Hoffman Forums and the comments have become to pessimistic on there. I realize that probably most Dylan fans lived through this tour back in 1975, but as a usually pessimistic 23 year old, I can't find one thing wrong yet about this film. In my view, you can never go wrong with a Dylan release.

There's apparently some doubt that Scorsese actually had sufficient video footage/material for the film and that it's simply full of filler. The Netflix trailer looks so amazing. I don't see where those accusations are coming from.

I think I must be one of the few who refuse to sign up with Netflix, just to see this. I am desperatly hoping that it will become available through the usual chanels.

I had Netflix for a few years. Perfectly good company pleasant to deal with and reasonably priced. But I stopped it because I watched too much shite and my brain started to rot.

I will go to see this in my local arts cinema and then buy ut when I get the chance. Looking forward to it. :D

Why not? Netflix offers a free trial month. You could sign up for free, watch it as many times in the next month, and then cancel without paying anything.

This. It's really really easy to cancel a Netflix trial. You can watch this documentary as many times as you want and hundreds of hours of great TV and films and pay nothing.

I'm 20, pessimistic, and totally agree with you. The trailer was flawless. I got goosebumps towards the end when Dylan's singing "Mama, wipe the blood off of my face, I can't see through it anymore..." Really moved me. But anyway, considering they just released a full footage version of "Hard Rain" on YouTube today, I find it hard to believe Martin didn't have enough footage. Not to mention, Renaldo & Clara was FIVE HOURS LONG, and it was made up entirely of original footage. Should be a blast.

I've been sitting around, waiting for them to announce which theater(s) it would premier at in Los Angeles...
Seems as if every other city, was announced long ago and people have had their tickets for weeks.

Los Angeles doesn't get announced (when the premier screenings poster was released) until Friday the 7th, late in the afternoon, Hammer Museum.
When I checked their website and Facebook page, there wasn't a single mention of the screening anywhere. So I emailed them.
They replied the next day, Saturday the 8th and said it was a private screening for "members only" that it wasn't open to the public and that all seats were already taken anyways.

So Los Angeles literally doesn't have a single public premier screening?

I don't get it...

Thanks so much for posting this, I couldn't get to the BFI Screening on June 11th but am going to The Prince Charles Cinema on June 14th (this Friday). Although the link shows it to be sold out for it's run there are still tickets available for various dates and times. (June 12th - June 18th).

re: NYC screening. I see that it's being screened at Lincoln Center as well as the IFC. Both starting on June 12. Any idea when the June 11th screening will be taking place in NYC? Both theaters said no to June 11 (unless they don't know yet) What's the hold up?


The premier is the 10th at Lincoln Center. They might not have any screenings till the 12th.

Does anyone here know how I can get into tonight's NYC premier at Lincoln Center? Apparently, Lincoln Center is not handling the tickets. Some other unknown organization is. Any ideas. Thanks.

It's invitation only and sold out I am afraid. I was lucky to get a ticket because a friend of mine knows someone who worked on the movie. I know they had tickets via 1Iota and I heard they rescinded all or some of the tickets just today to those people. My guess is that some more important people RSVP'd at the last minute and they needed the extra seats.

The theater its being shown in is not very big either.

Rats. I was afraid that was the case. I appreciate the info. If the rain lets up maybe i'll head down there and try good old fashioned charm. :)

The obvious question here - why isn't it being released to theaters for more than one night? Is Netflix that powerful and in control? I'd MUCH rather see it on the big screen with a huge sound system. Bob Dylan in this VERY rare raging glory deserves the big screen.
