Rolling Stones Cuba Concert Film ‘Havana Moon’ to Play in Theaters
The Rolling Stones' historic concert in Cuba on March 25, 2016, has been commemorated in the new film Havana Moon, heading to theaters for a special one-night engagement later this year.
Directed by Paul Dugdale, whose previous credits include the concert film of the Stones' 2013 show in Hyde Park, the film is scheduled to arrive in theaters Sept. 23. Promising exclusive content that won't be made available on the home version, Havana Moon's theatrical screening is hosted by Musicscreen, who've pledged to put the movie in more than a thousand theaters worldwide. "The Havana Moon cinema experience immerses the audience in fantastic surround sound with super high definition visuals," said CEO David Pope in a press release. "It's the closest you'll get to being there — don’t miss it."
UPDATE 8/5/16: You can watch the trailer for the movie below.
Fans can find screenings — and purchase tickets — starting in early August through the film's official site, where a theatrical trailer is set to debut soon. Details of the film's contents haven't been made available, but in addition to the band's hits-laden set, filmgoers can presumably expect to see some of the excitement surrounding the show, which marked the first time a rock act had booked a free show of this size and stature.
"The Cuba show was simply amazing," Stones frontman Mick Jagger recalled in a statement. "It was an incredible moment; a huge sea of people for as far as the eye could see. You could feel the buzz of the enthusiasm from the crowd and that was for me the stand-out moment."
"There's the sun, the moon, the stars and the Rolling Stones," added guitarist Keith Richards. "Seeing Cuba finally get the chance to rock out was special — a night to remember in Havana."
