The Rolling Stones — Live in Texas,' a documentary featuring footage from a 1978 Rolling Stones concert, will screen at 3 Columbus-area cinemas Oct. 18, 2011.
The Rolling Stones will make a stop in Columbus, but this time in the form of a concert film.
“Some Girls: The Rolling Stones — Live in Texas” will show footage from the “Some Girls” concert tour stop in Fort Worth, Texas, on July 18, 1978, as well as footage of an exclusive interview with lead singer Mick Jagger. It will screen at select local theaters Tuesday.
The concert film will be showing at the Columbus movie theaters: Georgesville Stadium 16, Crosswoods Cinema 17 and Pickerington Cinemas 16, at 7:30 p.m.
Movie production companies NCM Fathom, More2Screen and Eagle Rock, partnered to present a nationwide, one-night showing of the film.
A number of the Stones’ hits were played at the 1978 concert, including “Tumbling Dice,” “Honky Tonk Woman,” “Brown Sugar” and “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” and will be part of the remastered edition of the “Some Girls” album scheduled for release Nov. 21.
In the interview with Jagger, he will reflect on his memories of the concert tour and talk about the band’s history.
Dan Diamond, senior vice president of NCM Fathom, worked with More2Screen and Eagle Rock, and decided that it would be more entertaining and effective if the film was shown only one night.
“It’s a special event across the country and it is one night fans will get to experience like there were back in 1978,” Diamond said. “When you put out (a concert film) for a number of days, it’s no longer an event but a movie release.”
Diamond was excited about this project because he grew up with the Stones and believes that young students should take advantage of the band’s accomplishments.
“The ‘Some Girls’ tour was really what kicked them (Rolling Stones) from a hugely popular band to a major force in the music industry,” Diamond said.
Destin Tevis, a third-year in theatre, is unsure if he will attend but was excited to hear about the film.
“I don’t know if I would go into the film with a mind knowing I would love it, but it I would love the fact of experiencing something new,” Tevis said.
Another student who was surprised to hear about the film was Kali Grant, a third-year in public affairs. Although she will not attend, she would go if she had the time.
“It sounds like a fun event to bring friends to,” Grant said. “I don’t know much about the Rolling Stones, but I love a couple of their songs.”
The concert film will also screen in select theaters in California, New York, Florida and others.
