Rush and Anthem/Trafalgar have announced the first annual Cinema Strangiato - a theatrical film experience that will bring Rush fans together for a special look into Rush's R40 Live tour, with new backstage footage, special guests, and performances. Cinema Strangiato will hit theaters worldwide for one night only on August 21st with tickets going on sale Thursday, June 20th. For all the details and to sign up for email updates, visit www.cinemastrangiato.com. From the film's synopsis page:


The Holy Trinity of Rock returns to the big screen on Wednesday, August 21, when the first "Annual Exercise in Fan Indulgence" Cinema Strangiato brings Rush fans together in movie theatres worldwide. Featuring R40+, this global fan event will give audiences a special look into some of the best performances from R40 LIVE, including songs such as "Closer to the Heart", "Subdivisions", "Tom Sawyer" and more, as well as unreleased backstage moments and candid footage left on the cutting room floor. R40+ also includes unseen soundcheck performances of the fan-favorite "Jacob's Ladder", exclusive new interviews with Tom Morello, Billy Corgan, Taylor Hawkins, producer Nick Raskulinecz, violinist Jonathan Dinklage and more. As a special bonus, fans will get a glimpse into the madness and passion that went in to the making of Geddy Lee's new book, Geddy Lee's Big Beautiful Book of Bass - featuring a brand-new interview from the man himself.

I wish it was for more than one night. August 21st is my wedding anniversary. I’m sure my wife won’t want to go see a Rush movie. I’ll wait for the digital release I guess.

Just what fans are clamoring for - part 3 in the never-ending cash grab Rush goodbye.

I guess this a good sign that perhaps they will reunite.

Otherwise this is absolutely gross.

Might wait for the DVD.

This is in a ton of theaters
Rush In Rio might have been the last time Rush had this many theaters.

I really hope there's a lot of behind the scenes/ backstage footage or this is going to be a total dud  Perhaps OLE (sorry, they're now rebranded as "Anthem Entertainment") isn't getting the return on their investment as they'd hoped. Perhaps the guys were smart to cash out when they did.

Very curious to see how this plays out  First annual?

I was wondering about that, too!  Our local art theater has a Grease sing along every year, why not Rush?  The songs are just as good. ;)  ;)    As Rhyta said , it's fun to see them on the big screen.

Maybe you could ask for that as an anniversary present.

Yea....would never work. If it did, the price I would end up paying probably wouldn’t be worth it.

I have no problem seeing them on a big screen. (Seen them all since it started with Rush In Rio.)

But that journey ended (for me anyway.)

That said, I have no problem with Geddy taking us on a tour of his bass collection or getting some soundcheck  and backstage behind the scenes footage or unreleased footage.  I wouldn't even mind hearing from crew members in a kind of Backstage Secrets kind of thing. If they want to uncork some footage from the final show, I'd be more than up for that too.

I'd love to see Alex show off his acting chops or footage of him noodling on his front porch, but what else is Billy Corgan, Taylor Hawkins or those of similar ilk going to tell that they hasn't been told already?

In regards to the Billy Corgan and Taylor Hawkins comment, how much actual air time have we seen them speak on Rush in documentaries and interviews? 5-10 minutes? 15? Speak to many TRFers about Rush and their love of the band and you could be talking all night and then some. Depends a lot on the questions asked.

Let's get some new blood in there. I want to hear what Justin Beiber has to say.

Those guys have been talking about Rush since even before Sam Dunn interviewed them.  I would hope it's kept to a minimum.

Also anything that goes on around here isn't going to see the inside of a theater or be on a DVD. Whatever I bang out on a keyboard here certainly isn't worthy of it.
