The James River Film Society in conjunction with Chop Suey Books, Plan 9 Music, and The Byrd Theatre Foundation present the ONLY Richmond screening of Jim Jarmusch’s critically acclaimed documentary of the punk/metal pioneers The Stooges.

Emerging from Ann Arbor, Michigan, amidst a counterculture revolution, The Stooges’ powerful and aggressive style of rock-n-roll blew a crater in the musical landscape of the late 1960’s. Assaulting audiences with a blend of rock, blues, R&B, and free jazz, the band planted the seeds of what would be called punk and alternative rock in the decades that followed. Jim Jarmusch’s new film GIMME DANGER chronicles the story of The Stooges, one of the greatest rock-n-roll bands of all time.  GIMME DANGER presents the context of The Stooges’ emergence musically, culturally, politically, and historically, and relates their adventures and misadventures while charting their inspirations and the reason behind their initial commercial challenges, as well as their long-lasting legacy.



Tickets still available at The Byrd box office  : $10.00 ( cash )  $10.61 ( credit card )
