Quote from: Matt2112 on June 12, 2019, 12:25:00 pmThe Holy Trinity of Rock returns to the big screen on Wednesday, August 21, when the first "Annual Exercise in Fan Indulgence" Cinema Strangiato brings Rush fans together in movie theatres worldwide.  Featuring R40+, this global fan event will give audiences a special look into some of the best performances from R40 LIVE, including songs such as "Closer to the Heart", "Subdivisions", "Tom Sawyer" and more, as well as unreleased backstage moments and candid footage left on the cutting room floor.  R40+ also includes unseen soundcheck performances of the fan-favorite "Jacob's Ladder", exclusive new interviews with Tom Morello, Billy Corgan, Taylor Hawkins, producer Nick Raskulinecz, violinist Jonathan Dinklage and more. As a special bonus, fans will get a glimpse into the madness and passion that went in to the making of Geddy Lee's new book, Geddy Lee's Big Beautiful Book of Bass - featuring a brand-new interview from the man himself.

Sounds like a showing that's effectively R40 bluray extras in all honesty.  SEE YOU THERE!!  :D

Hopefully this will be showing somewhere not too far from me. I've signed up for the updates and I think the cinema listings are out on the 20th June.

What the hell kind of locations are they!?

Closest to me is Liverpool - over an hour and a half away!

There's Sheffield, Richard, but yes - very disappointing there's no West Yorkshire venue.  :(

One in Birmingham is showing it, not too bad for me, but it's on July 17th, and not August 21st, which was supposed to be the only night it was showing?! Will have to wait til nearer the time I think.

Yes - odd - one in Soho is listed as showings on 17th July and 21st August - I though it was a one night only thing.
May try and get to the one on the 17th ......

Blummin' 12 quid for an extended sequence of Blu-ray extras, having to make a 50-odd mile round-trip to Manchester in the middle of the working week?  Not exactly ideal.

Booked my ticket this afternoon.  ;D

The Curzon Cinema in Soho was oddly missing from the first list - but then it appeared the next day so booked a ticket - looks quite small from the seating plan, seems to be the only central London showing unless more are added.

They've put a late screening on in Glasgow, tickets purchased for that :)

Had an email from Curzon saying due to high demand the screening is now moved to the larger Screen 1 - due to the move however seats are now un-allocated....

Two days away - that's sneaked round.

Appears to be two showings at Manc Printworks: 7.30pm and 8.30pm

I'm at the former.  How about a roll call? :)

I don't think I'm going to bother with this now.

I've just learned that this is showing at The Light in Leeds!  Bugger.  May see if those nice folk at Vue will allow an exchange.

EDIT:  They have.  Leeds Light at 7.30pm it is. :)

Well, that was ace!

6 years since my last Ruah show and I'd genuinely forgotten just how awesome they were live. Plus the Leeds showing was deafeningly loud so you really got a concert experience.

Big thanks to Matt for tipping me off about the Leeds showing

Well I only got to know it was showing in Leeds yesterday myself, so a good stroke of luck there.

Yes, that was LOUD but gloriously so, with both guitars right up in the mix.  The concert footage which made up the large majority of the lengthy running time (150 minutes) was pretty eye-popping on the big screen, often giving the impression you were watching the chaps in action from the stage itself.  Got to say that while the musicianship is obviously top class, it was Geddy who really stood out for me here, attacking his basses with wonderfully nimble precision and relish.

Yes, the film is basically a bloated R40 Blu-ray extras package for the hardcore completist fanbois and fangrrls - of which I am unashamedly one.

And great to have a little catch-up with Richard too, who was one of the not inconsiderable number of air-drummers in attendance...! :)

I thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Even if the highlights of the night were from a DVD I already own, it's as close as you could get to being at a Rush concert again.

I now regret not going to see it, but a combination of things prevented me, so that's life I guess.

I enjoyed it a lot, the cinema I went to in New York looked full. I hadn't bought the R40 blu-ray or seen any of the footage so it really brought back some good memories from that tour (including Losing It, from the show in New Jersey I went to).

Unfortunately the screening at FACT Picturehouse in Liverpool was a disaster - the sound dropping out repeatedly throughout the live sections 😠 
Initially, I and many others thought it was intentional as the first time it only left us with Geddy's bass and vocals - was it possibly going to give snippits of the individual mixes?
Anyhow, everyone that attended is being offered a full refund - so it ended up being a cheap, if jarring, night out 😂
On the plus side, it was lovely to bump into Japes and Jude again 👍
