‘Roger Waters The Wall’ Adds Theatrical Encore Screenings
Citing "phenomenal demand" for tickets, Roger Waters The Wall will return to theaters for a special encore engagement in October.
As previously reported, the film commemorates Waters' three-year solo tour in which he played Pink Floyd's landmark album The Wall in its entirety, blending concert footage with behind-the-scenes glimpses of journeys to France and Italy, where he visited the World War I cemetery where is grandfather is buried and the beachhead where his father died during a World War II battle.
“We were a big family on the road, 189 of us, give or take the odd Snoozy Walrus," mused Waters in the press release announcing Roger Waters The Wall, sharing his hope that the film would serve as "the perfect way to remember not just our loved ones but the other guys’ loved ones — fallen, living and as yet unborn."
The movie's distributor, Picturehouse, promised "an immersive concert experience of the seminal 1979 Pink Floyd album, a road movie of Waters’ reckoning with the death of his father in Italy in 1944, and a stirring film that highlights the human cost of armed conflict," and filmgoers apparently agreed, as the initial one-night-only engagement last night is now being followed by further screenings.
According to a press release, the "additional chances" to catch Roger Waters The Wall on the big screen begin Oct. 15, with Fathom Events hosting an encore showing in nearly 250 U.S. theaters on Sunday, Oct. 18 at 12:55PM local time.
