Wild Things: A Celebration of Rock Documentaries & Mods & Rockers 2010


This is an Aero Theatre Exclusive, but more music films and Mods & Rockers at the Egyptian!


For the past 50 years, a steady stream of kinetically charged and revolution-revved rock documentaries have invaded the public eye and ear. Join us for a pounding, pulsing and awesomely defiant weekend of rock documentaries, including Stephen Kijak’s new Rolling Stones documentary STONE IN EXILE, the Maysles brothers' GIMME SHELTER, D.A. Pennebaker's MONTEREY POP, the restored extended version of Mel Stuart's WATTSTAX and the ultimate convergence of late 1960s legends, WOODSTOCK.



Thursday, July 29 – 7:30 PM

Mods & Rockers Special Rolling Stones Double Feature: West Coast Theatrical Premiere of New Stones film! STONES IN EXILE, 2010, Passion Pictures, 61 min. Director Stephen Kijak created this fascinating doc about the 1971 "Exile On Main Street" album from extensive unseen footage of the debauched French Riviera sessions, as well as hindsight perspectives from the survivors and rare outtakes from the Stones' masterpiece. Trailer

GIMME SHELTER, 1970, Janus Films, 91 min. Dir. Albert & David Maysles. The celebrated film of the Rolling Stones' 1969 US tour that culminated in the cataclysm at Altamont. Also features Jefferson Airplane and the Flying Burrito Brothers. Discussion between films with STONES IN EXILE director Stephen Kijak and GIMME SHELTER producer (and Stones business manager) Ron Schneider - moderated by Mods & Rockers Festival producer Martin Lewis. Trailer Buy Tickets



Friday, July 30 – 7:30 PM

Double Feature: MONTEREY POP, 1968, Pennebaker Films, 78 min. Directed by D.A. Pennebaker. This salute to the 1967 Monterey International Pop Festival revives the world-changing excitement brought on by the likes of Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Otis Redding, The Who and others.

Restored Extended Version: WATTSTAX, 1973, Sony Repertory, 104 min. Dir. Mel Stuart. This landmark 1972 concert teamed soul music with Black Pride – and was dubbed the "black Woodstock." The film presents a slew of great Stax Records artists performing at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, including Rufus & Carla Thomas, the Staple Singers, Albert King, Johnnie Taylor Kim Weston the Bar-Kays and closing act Isaac Hayes. We also experience the churches, shops and streets of Watts, just seven years after the race riots that scarred the city. Trailer Buy Tickets



Saturday, July 31 – 7:30 PM

40th Anniversary! WOODSTOCK (THE DIRECTOR’S CUT), 1970, Warner Bros., 228 min. Dir. Michael Wadleigh. If any film captured the heady idealism and the great music of the late 1960s, this is it. The Who, Crosby Stills & Nash, Sly & The Family Stone, Richie Havens, Joan Baez, Joe Cocker, Carlos Santana - need we say more?  Buy Tickets




Sunday, August 29 – 7:30 PM

L.A. Premiere of Leonard Cohen Concert Film! World Premiere of Dylan Film Outtakes! Folk, Blues & Roots Triple-Bill Extravaganza! LEONARD COHEN: LIVE AT THE ISLE OF WIGHT 1970, 2009, MLF, 65 min. Dir. Murray Lerner. In a legendary performance 40 years ago, the then 35-year-old Cohen held a crowd of 600,000 spellbound for an hour-long show that started at 4 a.m. The best film document of Cohen’s early period, including major hits such as "Suzanne," "So Long Marianne," "The Stranger Song,"  "Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye," "Diamonds In The Mine" and "Famous Blue Raincoat" - with Cohen backed by his group The Army - led by producer Bob Johnston. Trailer

BOB DYLAN: THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MIRROR, 2007, MLF, 83 min. Dir. Murray Lerner. Drawing from hours of previously unseen footage shot over several years at the Newport Folk Festival in the early-to-mid 1960s. Murray Lerner documents the remarkably swift metamorphosis of Bob Dylan from his first Newport appearance in the summer of 1963 as the scrawny, Guthrie-inspired protest singer to his historic and controversial 1965 appearance unveiling his new rock-star incarnation. Plus previously unseen Dylan performances! 

FESTIVAL, 1967, MLF, 98 min. Director Murray Lerner Oscar-nominated documentary chronicles all the major artists at the Newport Folk Festival from 1962 to 1966. Includes Dylan, Joan Baez, Donovan, Judy Collins, Johnny Cash, plus blues legends Mississippi John Hurt, Son House, Howlin' Wolf, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee and many more! Discussion between films with director Murray Lerner. Buy Tickets
