Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1976 was the day one of the most momentous events in music history took place. After 16 years of touring, The Band gave a farewell concert at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco, bringing along some of their friends, influences, and collaborators. This epic documentary by Martin Scorsese was released two years later and restored by Scorsese and producer Robbie Robertson in 2005.
“The greatest rock concert movie ever made — and maybe the best rock movie, period.” —Chicago Tribune. The film garnered awards: Kansas City Film Critics Circle Awards: Best Documentary; additional win and three nominations.
