As a followup to Roger Waters performance at the Newport Folk Festival this past summer, Jane Pickens Theater & Event Center will screen Roger Waters: The Wall on October 29th.

This film details one of the most elaborately staged theatrical productions in music history as Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters performs the band’s critically acclaimed album The Wall in its entirety.

The film commemorates Waters’ three-year solo tour in which he played Pink Floyd‘s landmark album The Wall in its entirety, blending concert footage with behind-the-scenes glimpses of journeys to France and Italy, where he visited the World War I cemetery where is grandfather is buried and the beachhead where his father died during a World War II battle.

“We were a big family on the road, 189 of us, give or take the odd Snoozy Walrus,” mused Waters in the press release announcing Roger Waters The Wall, sharing his hope that the film would serve as “the perfect way to remember not just our loved ones but the other guys’ loved ones — fallen, living and as yet unborn.”
