FESTIVAL EXPRESS | Dir. Bob Smeaton, Frank Cvitanovich | 90 min
On Saturday, September 12 Calgary Cinematheque presents a free outdoor screening of FESTIVAL EXPRESS, a 2003 music documentary. The filmed account of the Canadian rock festival train tour includes footage from the concert at McMahon Stadium in the summer of 1970. Some of the era's biggest rock stars participated in the multi-artist, multi-city concert tour including The Grateful Dead, The Band, Buddy Guy, and Janis Joplin in one of her last public performances.
Calgarians who attended the 1970s concert can relive the experience in this little known film.
