The theatrical return will feature a never-before-seen introduction from the late Robbie Robertson “providing a quick look into the genesis and impact” of the film chronicling The Band’s farewell concert.

As Consequence of Sound notes, the Band’s November 25th, 1976 concert at Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco featured more than a dozen special guests, including Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Ringo Starr, Neil Diamond, Emmylou Harris, Paul Butterfield, Dr. John, Muddy Waters, Ronnie Wood, Eric Clapton, and Van Morrison. First released in April 1978, the film splices interviews with each band member in between the songs, offering a look into the group’s rich history together.

Ahead of the film’s return to theaters, Rhino Records will be releasing a new vinyl reissue of the film’s soundtrack. The 3xLP audiophile pressing will be available from Friday, October 6th, 2023.
