OK, the award-winning feature-length documentary film about Geddy Lee and his band Rush played to a sold-out house at the Spectrum 8 Theatres in Albany on Thursday night, but it didn’t play at all at the Bearsville Theater in Woodstock, where it had also been scheduled for a one-night-only screening.
Apparently there were some delivery SNAFU issues – i.e., the film didn’t get to the theater on time – so the Woodstock screening was postponed at the last minute. “Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage” is now scheduled to be shown twice at the Bearsville Theater on Sunday – at 4 and 8pm. Prior to the 8pm showing, there will also be a raffle for a pair of tickets to see Rush in concert at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center on Friday, July 23, as well as a pair of drumsticks used by Rush drummer Neil Peart. Tickets are $10 in advance; $12 at the door.
The film is also slated to be screened again at the Spectrum 8 Theatres at 7:15pm on Thursday. Tickets are $9; seniors $7.25; children $6.25.
