Second Date Added For Movie Theater Showing of "Roger Waters The Wall"

Over the course of a year, there are now dozens of one-night event programs shown in movie theaters worldwide involving music including concerts, Broadway shows and operas but rarely does one play for more than a single showing.

Fans who were shut out from seeing Roger Waters The Wall on the big screen on September 29 are in luck. Fathom Events and Picturehouse Entertainment have announced that additional showings have been scheduled at over 250 locations in the U.S. on October 18 at 12:55 PM local time.

Roger Waters The Wall unfolds on many levels – as an immersive concert experience of the classic Pink Floyd album, a road movie of Waters’ reckoning with the past and as a stirring anti-war feature, highlighting the human cost of conflict.

The feature was shot in 4K and mixed in Dolby Atmos during Waters’ sold-out 2010-2013 ‘The Wall Live’ tour – the biggest selling tour by any solo artist in history - seen by over 4 million fans worldwide over a period of three years in 219 shows. It features never before seen concert footage from this breathtaking tour and includes the hits ‘Another Brick in the Wall Part 2,’ ‘Comfortably Numb’ and ‘Run Like Hell.’ Audiences will also have a unique opportunity to see The Simple Facts, with Waters and Nick Mason – reunited, unscripted and in conversation to answer questions submitted by the fans from around the world.

John Rubey, Fathom Events CEO, said, “We were so pleased with the overwhelming response to the first broadcast of this event, and are ready to bring Roger Waters’ vision to fans a second time. Moviegoers will get a unique opportunity to see a new take on a beloved musical masterpiece.”

Marc Allenby, Director of Distribution at Picturehouse Entertainment, said, “With the overwhelming success of the premiere and the addition of encore showings of Roger Waters The Wall, we are thrilled this brilliant film will find an even broader audience.”
