We couldn’t celebrate Dylan’s 80th birthday properly in May but this September we’re thrilled to be screening the little seen, much talked about Eat the Document.

After the seminal No Direction Home, Dylan rehired documentary maker extraordinaire DA Pennebaker again for his candle-burning-at-both-ends 1966 European tour with the Hawks (who were soon to morph into The Band).

In the end Dylan rejected Pennebaker’s rough edit, titled Something Is Happening, in favour of his own reworking. Hence was born the notorious Eat The Document.

Dylan’s uncompromising anti-documentary has only been shown a handful of times and never been released on home video. Too bad. It may be a challenging watch at times, but it rewards with some incredible live clips and an idiosyncratically beautiful cinematography. It also offers unique insight into Dylan’s amphetamine-frazzled mid-’60s psyche. We can’t think of a better way to mark the great man’s 80th.

Doors 7.30pm | Unreserved Seating
