Phil D is the organizer for this meetup.  If you need to contact him, please post a message on the wall, or go into his profile and email him through there.

Per MAMM policy, cellphone use by members during a movie is prohibited.  We request that you put away your phones once the previews start. If you need to check your phone for any reason, please exit the auditorium.

-------------------------------------------------------------

I'm a huge Beatles fan, and I really enjoy Paul's post-Beatles work, so this looks like a great way to enjoy selections from both eras as he sang them back in 1976.  I won't post what songs will be shown, I'd rather be surprised by the track listing.  But some of them can be heard in the trailer below.

Since this is a special event presentation, it's full price ($14.95) and uses up 1200 Scene Points.  As the description indicates below, there is a bonus interview with Paul McCartney that is exclusive to the theatrical screenings.

Concert Movie: Paul McCartney & Wings Rockshow (1976)

Movie synopsis:

ROCKSHOW is a 1980 concert film by Wings, filmed during their 1976 North American tour. It features 30 songs from four concerts of the tour: New York, May 25 (four songs); Seattle, Washington, June 10 (five songs); Los Angeles, California, June 22 (15 songs); and Los Angeles, California, June 23 (six songs). This was part of the Wings Over the World Tour that also spawned the triple live album Wings Over America. McCartney remained reluctant to make the entire film available to the general public until now. The film will include an interview with Paul McCartney that will be exclusive to theatrical screenings.

Trailer:

 

Here's a clip from one of the performances:

I look forward to seeing you there!!

      Thanks Chris. I think I heard about two of us, it was a TV movie if I recall. Director Michael Lindsay Hogg also directed Let It Be!

      Also, the link for Welcome to the Basement. Although the next film they critique will be HELP!, not a Beatle channel but a movie review channel. Basically, two guys, Matt and Craig, watch a film that Matt had always wanted to see but didn't (hadn't?). https://www.facebook.c...­

    Thoroughly enjoyed the film. Was always a big fan of the Beatles...not so much of Wings, but the film gave me a new appreciation of Paul McCartney's talents as well as Denny Laine's, an alumni of the Moody Blues. England does indeed produce some of the best guitarists in the world!

    The concert film was okay. I thought there would be some behind the scenes stuff of them having down time, or interviews with the audience and what they thought of Paul & Wings, but it was just straight concert performance footage. Lots of obscure album tunes in this one, along with familiar Paul & Beatle tunes. Thanks for coming out to see this film, and the lively Beatles trivia discussion we had after the movie @ PB!

    Here's the extended mix of Revolution 1 (AKA Take 20) that made it out onto the internet a few years ago. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQDDfW2pMhk

      You gotta buy it the same day as other people in the scenetourage. At least, that's how it should work. I haven't done any modifications of the membership, although there are a few who haven't been coming out for a while now.
