Bike-In Movie Theater: 'The Last Waltz'
Imagine drive-in movies from way back when: parking on the lawn, tuning in with the car radio, sneaking in beer. Now imagine that by way of your bike: no gas money, no battery drain, no dirty windshield obscuring the art.

On Sunday September 8th at 7:30pm, this seemingly unattainable dream will come true on the patio of the Hideout for our final screening of the year.

We'll have chairs and stools or you, but please feel free to bring snacks for the show. Just don't sneak in the beer - Hideout bar has you covered all night long.

The Logan Square International Film Series and The Hideout present a special outdoor, bike-in screening of the 1978 concert film, 'The Last Waltz' which was advertised as The Band's "farewell concert appearance", and saw The Band joined by more than a dozen special guests, including Paul Butterfield, Eric Clapton, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Emmylou Harris, Ronnie Hawkins, Dr. John, Joni Mitchell, Van Morrison, Ringo Starr, Muddy Waters, Ronnie Wood, Bobby Charles and Neil Young. The musical director for the concert was The Band's original record producer, John Simon & the event was filmed by director Martin Scorsese
