Description

Fifty years ago this summer nearly half a million people attended the Woodstock Music and Art Fair. The fair became rock and roll’s most famous event, an iconic representation of a generation’s ideals. We’ll recreate this seminal time and place with a special outdoor screening (note the early start time!) of Michael Wadleigh's Oscar-winning rock doc that completely and poignantly captured this now mythic music celebration. So let your inner flower child out and dance and sway and sing to the performances of Crosby, Stills & Nash; The Who; Joan Baez; Jimi Hendrix; Jefferson Airplane, and many more. It may not be a field in upstate New York, but it's the Open Space, a place where you can feel the power of music in the freedom of the open air, surrounded by friends and neighbors. Note: This film will start at 9:15 pm to accommodate the substantial runtime.
