We just got the Civic Theatre's Spotlight Magazine at our office.
Before I go on, let me say that I am not a big "go out and see a movie as soon as it comes out" person. The number one reason for that is price. Thirty bucks for Casey and I to get 2 tickets, popcorn and two sodas is ridiculous.
But when I saw that Civic was getting the documentary "It Might Get Loud", I immediately called to find out when it was playing. Unfortunately, as of today, they aren’t sure when it is playing. Fortunately, that doesn’t matter to me - I am just extremely happy they're getting this film. (My original plan was to go up to NYC and see it the night it came out back in mid-August but circumstances got in the way of that.)
"It Might Get Loud" is documentary about three rock 'n' roll guitar icons: Jimmy Paige (Led Zeppelin), the Edge (U2) and Jack White (The White Stripes, Raconteurs, and Dead Weather). They share stories about music they wrote, what kind of guitars they play, and who actually influenced them.
A rock 'n' roll movie like this is not meant to be viewed in the comfort of your own home on a couch. It is meant to be seen at place like the Historic Civic Theatre - an old school theatre for an old school jam session. I'm looking forward to being surrounded by a bunch of other people who love music and who want to sing, clap, stand, or scream.
Will you go see "It Might Get Loud" when it comes to Lehigh Valley?
