20 Feet from Stardom

"It does what the most powerful films and music have always done, which is to spark contemplation of our own lives and choices, and our place in the world, while also stoking compassion and empathy for lives far removed from our own." (Ernest Hardy, The Village Voice)
Academy Award Nominee for Best Documentary Feature
Millions know their voices, but no one knows their names. In his compelling new film, award-winning director Morgan Neville shines a spotlight on the untold true story of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. Along with rare archival footage and a peerless soundtrack, this immensely fun documentary boasts intimate interviews with Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Mick Jagger and Sting to name just a few. However, these world-famous figures take a backseat to the diverse array of backup singers whose lives and stories take center stage.

Please note that WE MEET AT THE MEMBERSHIP DESK IN THE LOBBY BEFORE THE FILM. When you enter the Burns lobby go to the desk adjacent to the stairs. If you can not locate the membership desk, please ask any member of the Burns staff for the membership desk. Please do not ask them for the meetup group as we are not part of the Burns staff but a film group that meets at the Burns. There are only 3 counters/desks in the lobby at the Burns, the membership desk is the one by the stairs and is NOT the one not selling popcorn or tickets.
Refunds are not offered for this Meetup.
