Summer Patio Film Series at Bayside Bowl
Called “the greatest rock film ever made,” Gimme Shelter follows the Rolling Stones on their notorious 1969 U.S. tour.
Before an estimated crowd of 300,000 people, the Stones headlined a free concert featuring Tina Turner, Jefferson Airplane, The Flying Burrito Brothers and others. Concerned about security, members of outlaw biker gang The Hell’s Angels were asked to help maintain order. Instead, an atmosphere of fear and dread arose,
leading ultimately to the stabbing death of a fan. What began as a flower-power love-in had degenerated into a near riot; frightened, confused faces wondering how the Love Generation could, in one swift, cold-blooded slash, became a generation of disillusionment and disappointment.
This is a free outdoor screening on the back patio at Bayside Bowl – 58 Alder St, Portland. Film starts at sunset. Seating and patio capacity ARE limited, please consider arriving early and bringing your own folding chair or blanket. There is a mobile walk-up patio beer stand and waitstaff will be available to take food and beverage orders from the bar and kitchen.
