The Rolling Stones Olé Olé Olé!: A Trip Across Latin America follows the band’s 2016 tour through 10 Latin American cities, culminating in their historic tour finale in front an audience of 1.2 million in Havana.

A road movie that celebrates the revolutionary power of Rock n Roll, this film chronicles the tour, local culture, and the unique bond that exists between the Latin American people and The Rolling Stones. A portrait of a band still at the very top of their game that have seen it all – but remain as hungry as ever to break new ground.

OCTOBER 19, 2016:

NWF presents the YEG Premiere of

GIMME DANGER

PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH DEDFEST. *DEDFEST PASSES ARE VALID FOR THIS SCREENING*

Emerging from Ann Arbor Michigan amidst a countercultural revolution, The Stooges’ powerful and aggressive style of rock-n-roll blew a crater in the musical landscape of the late 1960s. Assaulting audiences with a blend of rock, blues, R&B, and free jazz, the band planted the seeds for what would be called punk and alternative rock in the decades that followed. “Gimme Danger” presents the context of the Stooges emergence musically, culturally, politically, historically, and relates their adventures and misadventures while charting their inspirations and the reasons behind their initial commercial challenges, as well as their long-lasting legacy.

ONE NIGHT ONLY!

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 19 at 7PM – METRO CINEMA
