Back in the day (before even my time), movie houses used to show rock movies on Saturdays at midnight. Usually involving getting wicked torqued up in the parking lot in advance of seeing movies like The Song Remains The Same, The Wall, The Last Waltz, this rite of passage was a touchstone for rock fans and the kind of shared experiences that have been lost in this 21st century of ours. But in a brilliant twist, the Dipson Amherst Theater is reviving this wonderful concept every Saturday thru the end of March, and tonight they'll be offering WNY a third screening of the Led Zeppelin Celebration Day concert movie that blew minds back in October. Shot at Zepp's one off 2007 reunion show at London's O2 Arena featuring Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham, Celebration Day is a visceral and immediate live experience that gives viewers an incredible opportunity to watch this reconstituted Led Zeppelin be Led Zeppelin and crank their legendary jams in minute detail, and if you missed it in October it's definitely worth your time and consideration.
Please note: buffaBLOG does not recommend getting wicked torqued up in the Amherst Theater parking lot, on Main Street, in Amherst. That would not be a good idea.
