The Rolling Stones to screen Havana Moon at drive-ins

The Rolling Stones will screen their 2016 concert film, “Havana Moon”, at drive-ins across North America this summer.

Directed by Paul Dugdale, the project captures the band live before an estimated 500,000 fans in a free event that also marked their first-ever show in Cuba, which is considered a landmark event for rock n' roll in the country as the genre was banned for decades following the Cuban revolution.

As restrictions relaxed amongst lessened political tensions, The Rolling Stones performed the country's largest open-air rock concert ever, which came five days after sitting U.S. President Barack Obama's first visit to the country.

Havana Moon” will be seen in drive-in theatres across the U.S. and Canada for an exclusive summer concert experience beginning July 10, observing specific state and provincial reopening guidelines in each country.

"I'm so thrilled that Havana Moon has found its way back onto the big screen, particularly during such a strange time for live music,” says Dugdale. “The Rolling Stones concert was the first of its kind in Havana, and I hope the unprecedented absence of live music during the COVID-19 crisis means this film brings almost as much elation and joy to those watching it now through CineLife as it did the people of Havana back on that special night. Turn it up loud!"
