Metallica‘s first public screening of Metallica Through The Never in the US will be right in their own backyard at the beautiful historic Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center in San Rafael, CA on Tuesday, September 17th at 7:15 PM for this special kick-off event prior to the 36th annual Mill Valley Film Festival.
Metallica Through the Never stars Metallica, one of the most popular, influential rock bands in history. In this music-driven, 3D motion picture event, award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal immerses audiences in a bracing, raw and visceral cinematic experience with spectacular live performance footage of Metallica’s most iconic songs — created exclusively for film – combined with a bold, narrative story featuring imagery drawn from the band’s trailblazing iconography. Dane DeHaan portrays Trip, a young roadie sent on an urgent mission, during the Metallica’s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. The film features dazzling pyrotechnics, the most elaborate live-performance stage ever built and state-of-the-art 3-D photography, captured using up to 24 cameras simultaneously. Picturehouse will release in North America on September 27th, exclusively in over 300 IMAX 3D Theatres, and will expand into additional theaters on October 4th. To purchase tickets, click here.
