In honor of the epic concert's 40th anniversary, Michael Wadleigh's 1970 movie about the Festival That Changed America will screen at the Film Society of Lincoln Center tonight, as a star-studded audience (and you) looks on.
The original film has been restored and extra footage added to make this the Director's Cut (as befits the anniversary milestone), so don't blanch when you see the running time of just under four hours -- all those extra minutes mean tons of never-before-seen footage from the fest, so you can really feel like you were there, man. (And yes, there will be an intermission.)
Speaking of being there, the event's VIP list is packed with folks who were, from the film's director and a passel of producers to musicians from bands that played the event (Creedence Clearwater Revival, Santana, the Grateful Dead).
"Woodstock: the Director's Cut" Screening with Special Guests
Wednesday 6/3, 7PM
Walter Reade Theater (FSLC), 165 West 65th Street, at Broadway; (212) 875-5601
