  It’s Grateful Dead night at the movies all across America on Aug. 1, as a 41 year old concert film produced by a Santa Rosa man finally makes it to the big screen.

There are North Bay screening sites in San Rafael, Mill Valley and Napa. None in Sonoma County. See a complete nationwide list here.

Poor quality bootlegs of the "Kesey's Farm" concert, as it came to be known (the creamery for which the benefit was staged was owned and run by the writer's brother) have been widely circulated for years. The new and improved video version is something quite different, as can be seen in this excerpt.
