Woodstock comes to the Music Box

January 09, 2013|By Zara Husaini @zarhus | RedEye

If you’re sick of hearing your random hippie neighbor talk about how you’ll never know how epic Woodstock was, here’s your chance to prove him/her wrong.

Next Monday the Music Box Theatre will run a feature-length film of the late Jimi Hendrix’s 1969 Woodstock performance. The show, which has never screened before, is called "Hendrix 70: Live at Woodstock" and will run at 7:30 p.m.

The feature will include 14 performances, including Hendrix’s take on “The Star Spangled Banner,” “Purple Haze” and “Fire.”

The entire performance was not captured on film, but this version includes most of the original Woodstock set. It’s also been remastered with 5.1 surround-sound audio mix and will be supplmeneted with special features, including interviews with Hendrix’s band members, Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell.

Tickets are $11. The Music Box Theatre is at 3733 N. Southport Ave.
