To those people who got to see it a the theatre:
1) Wow! It sounds great. I'm so happy to hear the consensus is good. I'm not in love with everything Stevie does these days BUT am happy to hear this seems like a success. And I'm happy when the newest wave of attention she's getting might be based (at least partly) on a viable product, i.e something that warrants the attention (instead of flukes like viral videos and crack pot interviews that gain attention.)
2) How was the theatre experience? Were the theatres full (or as full as they could be with social distance seating?)
Thanks! Glad you all got to go.

Happy to hear it is good quality stuff, the show I attended on the tour was amazing and packed to the rafters with genuine fans who even sang along to New Orleans and Moonlight and Starshine! I had tickets to see this film today but my region has gone into a sort of lockdown so no cinemas are allowed to be open and the money was refunded. I really hope they can show it later when things open up again.

I didn't know this was getting a global theatrical release.
That's awesome!
How full were the theaters?

Moonlight was and is a masterpiece here, her vocals are amazing and how I remember them from the concerts I saw in Sydney, it was almost like she saved her voice until that song.
I could write so much more telling you all how impressed I am with the movie. Haters gonna hate, the rest, you will see for yourselves. The stories were not rambling at all and made me laugh more than I did hearing them live.
Finally, Mabel Normand played over the credits, a perfect ending. My highlights were Moonlight, Belle Fleur and Wild Heart/Bella Donna. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.
1.overdubs. I'm sure there are TONS, as there always are in her/FM's filmed/recorded shows. Blatantly obvious on Gypsy and Crying in the Night vids. (Her vocals, Waddy's vocals, Waddy's guitar, etc).

2. careful editing. She knew she was being filmed, and she spent days and days with them editing it just how she wanted it.

I'm glad people are enjoying it (I know, I know, anyone who isn't up her skirt is a "hater" ) but to think it isn't thoroughly tweaked is to ignore everything about her and her history. This is a woman who demands recordings of radio interviews that she sends back edited how she wants. Same with print interviews. So, yeah.

Of course it is tweaked. Doesn't mean the vocals aren't great or that the stories are not entertaining.

My theatre was very socially distanced (which was a bit weird after being in a football stadium with 39,000 people last week). I would say 80% of the available seats were occupied. It was screening at quite a number of cinemas in my city, so would be interesting to know what numbers were like elsewhere. I expect more people will be at the Sunday session.

It's all in the language and the intent. Constructive criticism is constructive criticism. That is not hating. Insults/name-calling, crass insinuations, that is where the "haters" designation comes in.

You do understand that you're NOT the police here, right?

I watched the film in Tampa tonight and absolutely loved it.

I think of seeing the "White Wing Dove" HBO special when I was 7 years old and how much I loved it - and then when I discovered "Red Rocks" in the early 90s and that was such a part of my life. As much as those videos were part of then...I thought how special it was so go see a new Stevie concert film now, in 2020. We're all getting older...too. Thankful for another chapter and a film that's part of it.

And really, who the hell every thought we'd be sitting in a theatre in 2020 hearing fantastic live versions of "Lady From The Mountain", "If You Were My Love" "Crying In The Night" "Wild Heart/Bella Donna" etc etc?

And "Mable Normand" as the closing credits? Ten years ago if someone predicted this we would have banished them lol. (Especially when the late 00s tours were so formulaic.)

24K was really a special era - you could feel the magic in the film.
