The director’s cut of Oscar-winning documentary Woodstock is set to hit theaters across America for just one night, on Thursday, August 15.
Fathom Events and Warner Bros. have partnered to bring the film, made in 1969 and considered one of the most acclaimed documentaries ever produced, to theaters.
“Both as a documentary and as a pop-culture phenomenon, ‘Woodstock’ is a milestone, a pivotal moment in history captured forever, proving the enduring power of cinema,” said Ray Nutt, CEO of Fathom Events.
He added, “Fifty years later, there has never been anything quite like it, either as a music festival or as a film, and Fathom Events is proud to be part of the anniversary of Woodstock.”
The Michael Wadleigh-directed documentary features 30 musical performances, including a five-song set by Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Janis Joplin, and Crosby, Stills & Nash.
The film won an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature and was nominated for Best Film Editing and Best Sound.
In addition to capturing the performances at the 1969 Woodstock festival, the film contains interviews with fans who attended the festival and the locals.
