One of the most famous documentaries of all time, Woodstock encapsulated the spirit of the ‘60s in one 3-hour film. Directed by Michael Wadleigh, the film captured the sights and sounds of the 1969 counterculture Woodstock festival in Bethel, New York. The film features some of the most legendary musicians in American history, including Jimi Hendrix, The Who, and Joan Baez, as they perform over three days for an audience of 400,000. Winning the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature, Woodstock revolutionized the genre with its innovative editing and immediate widespread appeal. The concert film was so popular that it grossed over $50 million dollars in one year, becoming one of the highest grossing films of 1970. Selected in 1996 for preservation in the U.S. National Film Registry by the Library of Congress, Woodstock was celebrated by the late Roger Ebert as a “beautiful, moving, ultimately great film.” For the screening this August, get in the spirit by arriving.

Marking the 46th anniversary of the film’s creation, the screening at The Lyric Theatre will feature a talkback with Woodstock photographer, Barry Z Levine, and author of “The Woodstock Story Book” Linanne G. Sackett. The still photographer for the film, Barry Z Levine took over 300 color photographs during his time at the legendary music festival. Many of his photographs have been featured in documentaries and books about the event, including in Woodstock Remembered, “Woodstock ’69: The First Festival,” and “Woodstock: Three Days that Rocked the World.” Most recently, Levine was honored in Italy by Biografilms for his life work. Joining Barry is his wife and author Linanne G. Sackett. Sackett and Levine worked together on “The Woodstock Story Book,” a book that features Levine’s rare photographs and a chronological account of the concert. Don’t miss the talkback after the film this August, featuring Barry Z. Levine and Linanne G. Sackett.
