‘Last Waltz’ To Show In Moundsville
MOUNDSVILLE — The Moundsville-Marshall County Public Library will present a “Think Outside the Book” film at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 26. The feature will be The Last Waltz, the acclaimed music bio-documentary directed by Martin Scorsese celebrating The Band’s Thanksgiving 1976 concert.
On that day The Band gave an historic farewell concert at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco. The film includes interviews with band members Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, Richard Manuel and Robbie Robertson, but has been called “the most beautiful rock film ever made” because of the musical and visual feast captured by Scorsese, with concert footage featured an amazing line-up of great musicians: Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Emmylou Harris, Van Morrison, Dr. John, Muddy Waters, The Staples, Ringo Starr, Neil Diamond, Ron Wood, Ronnie Hawkins and Paul Butterfield.
A must-see film for anyone that appreciates classic rock ‘n’ roll. It is rated PG, runs 117 minutes and is a 1978 release. This film showing is free and open to the public. Attendees are invited to bring their own snacks (and seat cushions) if desired. The Moundsville Library is located at the corner of Tomlinson Avenue and Fifth Street in Moundsville.
