Cinedigm Entertainment Group, a division of Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. (NASDAQ: CIDM), announced today that it will release NO ROOM FOR ROCKSTARS in select theaters across the country in an exclusive engagement on Thursday, March 1, 2012. Filmmaker Parris Patton’s much-anticipated documentary chronicling the Vans Warped Tour, will have its World Premiere at the 2012 Slamdance Film Festival on Sunday, January 22 in Park City, Utah.
”We are thrilled to bring NO ROOM FOR ROCK STARS to the many avid VANS WARPED TOUR fans across the country,” said Bob Fiorella, COO of Cinedigm Entertainment Group. “This documentary is the perfect candidate for the extremely targeted and efficient distribution model that digital cinema enables and we are confident that VANS WARPED TOUR fans will flock to theatres to support the exclusive engagement.”
From the team responsible for the acclaimed DOGTOWN AND Z BOYS, NO ROOM FOR ROCKSTARS is a film thatresonates beyond tour and punk rock fans to anyone seeking out the true stories of rock and roll. For 17 years, the Vans Warped Tour has been a punk rock juggernaut, a misfit circus crisscrossing North America every summer as a wandering minstrel show for youth culture. Embracing a powerful, unifying ethic created by its founder Kevin Lyman, the tour has grown and prospered as the music industry itself imploded and continues to sift through the rubble in search of a new way forward. Along the way, Warped has provided a launching pad for a dizzying array of talent, from Green Day and Blink 182 to Ice-T, Eminem and No Doubt, along with perennial punk legends such as Pennywise, All, Bouncing Souls and Bad Religion.
Cinedigm is a leader in transforming movie theaters into digital and networked entertainment centers and has released close to 200 independent films and alternative content events.
With more than 300 hours of film shot during the 2010 tour, NO ROOM FOR ROCKSTARS documents the true stories of modern era rock and roll from every possible angle. The film is accompanied by a blazing soundtrack of Vans Warped Tour all-time greatest hits.
The film is directed by Parris Patton and produced by Stacy Peralta and Agi Orsi, with Cecy Rangel as co-producer and Doug Palladini as executive producer. Josh Salzman served as director of photography, and Joshua Altman as editor along with Patton.
Theatre locations will be announced in the coming weeks at www.noroomforrockstars.com.
Following the one-night theatrical event, NO ROOM FOR ROCKSTARS will be released on iTunes on April 2 and DVD on May 8.
