Roger Waters Bringing 'The Wall' To A Theater Near You

Roger Waters, in association with Fathom Events and Picturehouse Entertainment, is set to bring his concert film Roger Waters The Wall to cinemas across the globe on Tuesday, September 29, for one night.

Written and directed by Roger Waters and Sean Evans, Roger Waters The Wall will be shown at select movie theaters throughout the U.S.  The film unfolds on many levels as an immersive concert experience of the seminal 1979 Pink Floyd album, road movie of Waters’ reckoning with the death of his father in World War II, and a stirring look at the human cost of armed conflict.

Additionally, this event will feature an exclusive “in conversation” with Roger Waters and Nick Mason, where the Pink Floyd rhythm section will reunite over the breaking of bread and the answering of questions sent in by fans.

Tickets for the U.S. showings of Roger Waters The Wall are available at participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com. The event will be presented in more than 300 select U.S. movie theaters through  Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network.

Roger Waters The Wall  had its premiere at last year's Toronto Film Festival. Beyond the music, Waters reflects on the impact of war on his own family as he embarks on a deeply personal pilgrimage. The concert portion of the film was shot in 4K and mixed in Dolby Atmos during Waters’ sold-out 2010-2013 The Wall Live tour.

The concert production featured a massive 500-foot iteration of the famed “wall.” Seen by over a million fans across North America, a million fans across Latin and Central America, and a million fans across Europe, that total of more than four million fans worldwide, makes Waters’ the biggest worldwide tour by a solo artist, ever.

Roger Waters said, “I hope these worldwide screenings this coming September 29 will be a good opportunity to remember, not just our fallen loved ones, but all the other guys’ fallen loved ones. Ashes and diamonds foe and friend we were all equal in the end.”
