To celebrate the reopening of cinemas and the return of live music to The Gorge Amphitheater in Washington, Trafalgar Releasing has announced a new theatrical release date for Huge: the history of the gorges. The one-night-only event will take place on July 21 with additional screenings at selected locations. The film tells how a family business Washington Winery, with a makeshift plywood stage, eventually became “The Gorge”, an internationally renowned concert hall that has drawn over 7 million fans and the world’s greatest musicians, in a plot of rural farmland ” 150 miles from nowhere “.
From the origins of the amphitheater to its social impact, this heartfelt documentary mixes the personal stories of music legends Dave matthews, Mike McCready (pearl jam), Jason mraz, and Steve miller, with emotional tales from several fans. These stories reveal how the place launched careers and changed lives forever, as “The Gorge” became a Billboard, Poll star, and ACM award-winning concert hall.
In addition to the feature film, theatrical screenings will offer exclusive and unpublished interviews with Portugal. The man, Dierks Bentley, and Phantogram. The evening will also include a world premiere of The Enormisodes – five mini-documentaries about The Gorge – as well as a blooper reel featuring Dave matthews, Jason mraz, and Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, among others.
“With The Gorge reopening in July, after more than a year of closed theaters, concert halls and a dire lack of shared live experiences, Huge: the history of the gorges couldn’t come out at a better time, “said the film’s director, Nic davis. “Our film is about the power of place. And the power of community. And how great music has brought millions of people around the world to dance together on a piece of rural farmland. Huge captures the experiences that we all missed last year and I look forward to coming back to them. ”
Despite the long journey (and perhaps because of it), The Gorge has become “a pilgrimage for the artist and the public”, according to Jason mraz, who performed for the first time in the parking lot of the amphitheater during one of the Dave matthews epic three-day shows. The setting for The Gorge is unprecedented, and the community among its fans is undeniable. “There is no place like it in the world,” said Dave matthews.
“The Gorge is united by the community, and we love that people can explore its history together in movie theaters across North America“said Trafalgar Releasing SVP of Content Acquisitions Kymberli Frueh.” This film captures the magic of The Gorge itself and the impact of the live music experience on artists and fans who travel from near and far to enjoy concerts together – making the live music experience more relevant than ever. ”
The Gorge Amphitheater is a Live Nation venue located in the rural town of George, WA over the Columbia River. One of America’s first open-air concert halls, The Gorge is a 27,500-seat concert hall that has hosted artists such as Bob Dylan, Coldplay, Tom Small, Dave Matthews Group, Pearl Jam, The Grateful Dead and thousands more. The Gorge has been closed due to the pandemic since March 2020 and is expected to reopen with the Watershed Festival of July 30 – August 1 with Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley, Thomas rhett, and Kelsea Ballerini, among others.
Huge: the history of the gorges will be screened in cinemas nationwide July 21, 2021 (with additional screenings in some places). Tickets are on sale now on EnormousMovie.com, as well as the most recent information on participating cinemas.
