'Rush | Time Stand Still' documentary coming to movie theaters for special one night event, Thursday, November 3

I hope many of you will get a chance to join me at one of the many movie theater locations that will be featuring the special screening of the new Rush documentary Rush | Time Stand Still when it is screened this Thursday, Nov. 3, 2016.

Here is the official trailer:

Here is the text of the official announcement:

Fathom Events, ole, Anthem and Zoe are excited to bring Rush | Time Stand Still to movie theaters nationwide for a larger-than-life one night event on Thursday, November 3!

The popularity of a rock band can often be built on the road. That is how Rush did it over their 40-year history. Building a bond with their fans that has carried them through countless gold and platinum albums and, eventually, into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame. But...what happens if this unique, reciprocal relationship between Rush and their devoted fans may be severed?
'Time Stand Still' is coming to DVD and
Blu-ray on November 18, 2016.

In 2015, Rush went out for a 40th anniversary tour and it was rumored it may be their last tour of its kind. (You can read my review of that tour's 2nd-to-last date at Irvine Meadows in Orange County, CA here). This might actually be the end of their life on the road. Rush Time Stand Still is an event which covers the R40 tour and the unique relationship Rush have with their devoted fans.

Exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the band and crew throughout the tour provide the raw and vivid emotional undertones of this one-night event. At the core of the event are Rush's devoted fans. Their undying devotion and their quirky sense of ownership are on full display as the R40 tour comes to a crescendo in Los Angeles.

Personal stories highlight the importance Rush holds in their lives and the lasting impressions of their extensive catalog. For Rush, they are quick to acknowledge the role their fans have played in their success, which makes this tour so difficult.

Candid interviews with Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart bring Time Stand Still to an emotional conclusion for a band who built their career the old-fashioned way. One show at a time.

Featuring exclusive extras including Rush A Salute to Kings, a 20-minute in-depth discussion with Gene Simmons (KISS), Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters), Ann and Nancy Wilson (Heart), Scott Gorham (Thin Lizzy), and the band's producer Nick Raskulinecz as they share their unique stories about Rush at home and away for 40 years.
