Billy Joel’s The Last Play at Shea will be showing at theatres all across America this Thursday, October 21. If you click on the link, you can view the trailer and see a list of the venues nationwide. You can also order tickets in advance.
Don’t miss this. It is a great film, filled with great music, powerful images, and real emotion. I reviewed it when it was shown at the Tribeca Film Festival and I have described what it was like to see it with a crowd of 25,000 at Citi Field, as we were part of what was probably the largest movie premiere in history. As you can see from the list of venues, a few theatres in the New York area will be showing the film all through the weekend. I am hoping and expecting that even more will eventually show it for a full theatrical run.
See it Thursday. Let’s show them that there is a huge audience for a fine film about Shea, about the Mets, about New York, about Billy Joel, and about one of the most exciting and meaningful concerts in the history of rock and roll.
