Pink Floyd: Live At Pompeii + Led Zeppelin: The Song Remains The Same

Pink Floyd: Live At Pompeii – 7:30pm
Hey, man — remember that time you got royally stoned and went to see The Floyd’s flick, Live At Pompeii on 35mm? No? That’s because it hasn’t happened yet! But soon, man, soon! You’ll be whisked away to a steamy, volcanic landscape, with a full-on coliseum at its center — and in the center of that, one of the jammiest bands to ever cram your clam full of reverb-drenched epic prog that’ll melt your mind and diddle your eardrums. For this once-in-an-eon event, the boys are in full effect, with their array of guitars, gongs and be-knobbed synths catching the glint of a setting sun dipping below the horizon of a ghostly, ancient land. They’ll rock, they’ll talk, they’ll deny pies with crusts while betraying their star-inflated vanities — all in the midst of recording their classic album “The Dark Side Of The Moon”. The noise never stops, and there’s even a singing dog! No, daddy-o, you’re not too stoned, that’s just the way it goes, so come trip out and feast your eyes on this classic phantasmagoria!
Dir. Adrian Maben, 1972, 35mm, 85 min.

Led Zeppelin: The Song Remains The Same – 9:15pm
Lo’! Look to the east — a ship on the horizon, flying the Devil’s flag! At the helm, Robert Plant, a golden-locked god of rock with his eyes fixed on his latest conquest — Madison Square Garden, where faces will be melted mercilessly and with no quarter. The legends are true! Led Zeppelin star in one of the wildest time-travelling, grail-questing concert films ever, containing an onslaught of incredible footage from Zep’s heyday as they play one of the wildest arena gigs imaginable – interspersed with wild visions of adventure and downright bloody murder! Witness a monstrous Mafioso bleed rainbow goo after a tommy gun shoot-out! A face-morphing wizard with prismatic, stroboscopic arms that summon guitar solos from the depths of space and time! A drum solo so long that John Bonham lives his entire life in montage as it elapses! Watch one of the most beloved bands in rock history as they’re called forth from a bucolic British village in order to lay sonic siege to an all-too-eager crowd! We defy you not to headbang along!
Dirs. Peter Clifton & Joe Massot, 1976, 35mm, 137 min.
