April 30, 2015 in Uncategorized by KrclAdmin MusicMeetsMovies_250x250

Join KRCL on Thursday, May 14th at Brewvies Cinema Pub for “The Grateful Dead Movie”, a film by Jerry Garcia and Leon Gast that documents the Grateful Dead’s performance at Winterland in San Francisco, October 1974. “The Grateful Dead Movie”, released in 1977 and directed by Jerry Garcia, is a film that captures live performances from the Grateful Dead’s October 1974 five-night stand at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. This end-of-tour run marked the beginning of an extended hiatus for the band, with no shows planned for 1975. The movie also faithfully portrays the burgeoning Deadhead scene. The film features the “Wall of Sound” concert sound system that the Dead used for all of 1974.

Tickets at 6pm – Screenings at 7pm and 9pm. Bring your KRCL member card for 2 for 1 entry!
