Overview

A farewell to one of rock's most prolific acts, this concert film documentary ends up becoming a celebration of an era. After spending a gruelling 16 years on the road, The Band decided to call it quits.  They collectively determined to stage this final show at Bill Graham's Winterland on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 1976.

There are great songs performed by many here; by Ronnie Hawkins, Mac "Dr John" Rebennack, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Paul Butterfield, Neil Diamond, Muddy Waters , Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton.

117 mins. Directed by Martin Scorsese, 1978

Saturday 17 November - 2pm
Auditorium - free entry
