The Mill Valley Film Festival is excited to announce a special kick-off event in anticipation of the 36th Mill Valley Film Festival. James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo will be on hand to present the U.S. Public Premiere of their new 3D feature film that combines a spectacular arena live performance with a surreal adventure story. Picturehouse’s new release METALLICA THROUGH THE NEVER is a feature film starring members of the iconic rock band and emerging young star Dane DeHaan (The Place Beyond the Pines, Kill Your Darlings, The Amazing Spider-Man 2).
In this music-driven, 3D motion picture event, award-winning filmmaker Nimród Antal (Predators, Kontroll) immerses audiences in a bracing, raw and visceral cinematic experience with spectacular live performance footage of Metallica’s most iconic songs – created exclusively for film – combined with a bold, narrative story featuring imagery drawn from the band’s trailblazing iconography. Dane DeHaan portrays Trip, a young roadie sent on an urgent mission, during the Metallica’s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. The film features dazzling pyrotechnics, the most elaborate live-performance stage ever built and state-of-the-art 3-D photography, captured using up to 24 cameras simultaneously. Picturehouse will release METALLICA THROUGH THE NEVER in North America on September 27, 2013 exclusively in over 300 IMAX® 3D Theatres, and will expand into additional theaters on .
Rush tickets often become available even after advance tickets have sold out. The rush line forms outside the venue beginning one hour before showtime. Approximately 15 minutes prior to the screening, available rush tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. No discounts. Cash only.
The mission of the California Film Institute is to celebrate and promote film as art and education.
We achieve this goal through three core programs: year-round programming at the Christopher B. Smith Rafael Film Center, the annual Mill Valley Film Festival, and the CFI Education Program.
