Rolling Stones Concert Film Coming To Drive-In Theatres Across U.S. And Canada

A 2016 Rolling Stones concert film will debut in drive-in theaters across the United States and Canada on July 10.

The movie, titled The Rolling Stones: Havana Moon, is a concert filmed in Cuban capital Havana in March 2016.

It documents the band's free concert held at the Ciudad Deportiva de la Habana sports complex, which had an estimated 500,000-person audience.

This marked a landmark event for rock n' roll in Cuba, as the genre was banned for decades in the Communist country following the Cuban revolution.

As restrictions relaxed amongst lessened political tensions, The Rolling Stones performed the country's largest open-air rock concert ever, which came five days after the then U.S. President Barack Obama's first visit to the country.

This film, directed by Paul Dugdale and produced by Simon Fisher, previously had a one-night international theater premiere, and debuted in the U.S. on STARZ.

Dugdale said he hopes the unprecedented absence of live music during the COVID-19 crisis means this film brings almost as much elation and joy to those watching it now through CineLife as it did the people of Havana back on that special night.
