Bum’s Rush: No TC Nor Yakima Theater to Show Rush Concert Film
Rush's Cinema Strangiato 2019 will run for one night only on August 21st and you'll have to drive to Spokane or Seattle to see it.
Lack of awareness of the film even being available was the consistent explanation given as to why no movie screens would be showing the Rush movie in Tri-Cities or Yakima.
A spokesperson for Fairchild Cinemas in Pasco said movie chains like Fairchild, welcome public input and lobbying to show movies off the beaten bath, but it is a long process, usually made longer by studio delays -- some get back to you faster than others -- so it is way too late, allegedly, to do try and land this, as the movie runs one night only, and in 8 days (August 21).
Bassist Geddy Lee says the movie serves as a testament to the band's 2015 final tour. The flick takes its name from the band's 1978 Hemispheres track "La Villa Strangiato," and compiles live soundcheck and concert footage of the band from its 2015 "R40 40th" anniversary tour.
Geddy said, "What it is is basically a way of celebrating the 'R40' tour in the sense on a big screen. It's taking a lot of stuff that fans might have seen on that video, the concert footage, but it's added a few twists to it -- there's some soundcheck footage, there's some pieces that people haven't seen and haven't been released, and there are interviews with various musicians blah-blah-blah-ing about us. So I think the intent of the record company, in that regard, was just to create something that you can't have at home. Going into a venue with a ton of other like-minded Rush fans and celebrating the final tour, as it were."
Along with unseen footage of Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson, and Neil Peart, Rush: Cinema Strangiato 2019 features new interviews with producer Nick Raskulinecz, Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan, Tom Morello, and Foo Fighters' Taylor Hawkins.
