[Press release from Cleveland Cinemas.]
Following international acclaim at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival, The British Film Institute’s London Film Festival, and the Rome International Film Festival, Bruce Springsteen's THE PROMISE: THE MAKING OF DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN, will screen at the Cedar Lee Theatre (2163 Lee Rd., Cleveland Hts.) on Thursday, April 28th at 7:00 PM and will benefit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
THE PROMISE: THE MAKING OF DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN was directed by Grammy- and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Thom Zimny. The film, which premiered to the public with a limited HBO engagement in October 2010, received a rapturous critical response. The Los Angeles Times gave THE PROMISE five stars, while Variety called it "thrilling” and “a vivid portrait."
The ninety-minute documentary combines never-before-seen footage of Springsteen and the E Street Band shot between 1976 and 1978, including home rehearsals and studio sessions with new interviews with Springsteen, E Street Band members, manager Jon Landau, former-manager Mike Appel, and others closely involved in the making of the record.
This benefit screening will feature product giveaways, with audience members eligible to win the forthcoming THE PROMISE: THE MAKING OF DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN BluRay edition, which includes the bonus features "Songs From the Promise," a five-song concert event filmed in Asbury Park, NJ, and "A Conversation With His Fans," an intimate question-and-answer session.
Tickets are $10 and are on sale now at the Cedar Lee Theatre box office and online at www.clevelandcinemas.com.
