Cineplex Entertainment's Front Row Centre Events and Eagle Rock Entertainment today announced that they will present the Rolling Stones' documentary, 'Crossfire Hurricane,' for one night only, on Thursday, November 8, 2012, at 7:30 p.m. local time.
'Crossfire Hurricane,' directed by Brett Morgen, provides a remarkable new perspective on the Stones' unparalleled journey from blues-obsessed teenagers in the early 1960s to rock royalty. It's all here in panoramic candour, from the Marquee Club to Hyde Park, from Altamont to Exile, from club gigs to stadium extravaganzas.
With never-before-seen footage and fresh insights from the band themselves, the film will delight, shock and amaze long-time devotees, as well as another generation of fans, with its uniquely immersive style and tone. 'Crossfire Hurricane' places the viewer right on the frontline of the band's most legendary escapades.
Taking its title from a lyric in 'Jumping Jack Flash,' 'Crossfire Hurricane' gives the audience an intimate insight, for the first time, into exactly what it's like to be part of the Rolling Stones, as they overcame denunciation, drugs, dissensions and death to become the definitive survivors.
To celebrate this special event, Cineplex will offer an exclusive 50th anniversary commemorative 'Crossfire Hurricane' numbered collectable ticket for anyone seeing the film on November 8. Guests will receive their ticket at the theatre on the night of the film.
Tickets for 'Crossfire Hurricane' are available at participating theatre box offices and online at www.cineplex.com/therollingstones. A complete list of participating theatres and showtimes is also available online.
The worldwide distributors of 'Crossfire Hurricane' are London's Eagle Rock Entertainment, with Tremelo Productions and Milkwood Films as the production companies.
"We are very pleased to continue our association with the Rolling Stones' visual rights agenda and their collaboration with such great filmmakers," said Terry Shand, Eagle Rock Entertainment Chairman and CEO.
Eagle Rock Entertainment will release 'Crossfire Hurricane' on DVD and Blu-ray in spring 2013.
