Sunset Cinema: “Gimme Shelter”
August 12 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm$12
Sunset Cinema is Irvington Theater’s all-new series of music films that will be screened outdoors on the lawn behind Main Street School. The series will feature one film during each summer month, starting on June 10 with Stop Making Sense, the 1984 concert movie featuring beloved rock group Talking Heads. Amazing Grace, the story of Aretha Franklin’s 1972 performance with the New Bethel Baptist Church Choir, will screen on July 8, followed by Gimme Shelter on August 12, the documentary chronicling the tumultuous final weeks of the Rolling Stones’ 1969 United States tour.
Audiences are invited to bring a blanket or chair, pack a picnic (no alcohol on school grounds), and enjoy live music from 7:30pm each night until the film begins around sunset. On your way, be sure to swing by Irvington’s newly-opened FarmEats BBQ for grab-and-go bites made just for the series! This is a carry-in, carry-out event, and there will be no public restrooms.
Safety is a top priority for Irvington Theater, and all COVID protocols will be followed in accordance with up-to-date guidance from CDC and New York State. For the latest information, visit irvingtontheater.com/safety.
