Fri, Mar 10 | 6:30 PM | TICKETS

Sun, Mar 12 | 2:30 PM | TICKETS

Director Martin Scorsese’s film shot live of the final performance of The Band at the Hinterland in San Francisco, Thanksgiving 1976, with great appearances by everyone from Neil Diamond to Neil Young and an elusive Bob Dylan, who had first hired The Band to back him up and in doing so changed the course of modern rock music. Scorsese at his jittery, stuttering visual best. Great songs recorded beautifully.
