ROCK ON FILM PRESENTS: THE DOORS
The Doors: The Final Cut Screening and on stage live interview with Special Guests: Oliver Stone and John Densmore. Moderated by Steven Baltin.
This summer, On Friday, August 16, legendary concert and event venue The Wiltern will be celebrating all things The Doors and screening The Doors: Final Cut, the brand new 4K restoration of 1991 original film, initiated and supervised by director Oliver Stone himself.
Follow the life and times of the band's enigmatic and magnetic front man Jim Morrison (Val Kimer) from cradle to grave. Stone's powerful musical portrait, featuring an amazing soundtrack including over twenty-five songs from The Doors' catalogue, charts Morrison's turbulent relationship with his muse Pamela Courson (Meg Ryan), the formation of the band in Southern California, his experimentation with hallucinogens and the occult, and his tragic death at the age of 27 in Paris. John Densmore will be selling signed books at our merch station and hosting a M&G at the event (tickets: www.universe.com/thedoors).

ABOUT THE DOORS: THE FINAL CUT
After a psychedelic experience in the California desert, Jim Morrison and his band mates begin performing in Los Angeles and quickly become a sensation. However, when the temptations and realities of stardom leads him astray, the band starts to worry about their leader.
ABOUT ROCK ON FILM:
In 1987, the legendary rock concert promoter Bill Graham presented an 18-day “Rock on Film” festival at The Wiltern. The American Cinematheque’s 44 film salute to the great rock musicians of our time illustrates the development and influence of this once maligned style of film music.
In 2019, The Wiltern is bringing Graham’s legacy and Rock on Film back to where it all started.
