Simple Props, Rolling Stones film to close out Capitol Theatre film series

Posted

ROME — The third and final night of the film series, “Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll’ begins with a live music concert starting at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 19, outdoors in the Capitol Courtyard, 230 West Dominick St., followed indoors by a movie at 7:30 p.m.

Simple Props will perform music from the 80s, 90s, and today. Copper City Brewing will also be in the courtyard.

Following the band performance will be the movie “The Rolling Stones Rock ‘n’ Roll Circus.” On Dec. 11, 1968, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Jethro Tull, Taj Mahal, Marianne Faithfull, Eric Clapton, John Lennon, and Yoko Ono all performed on stage, but footage of the performances was not released until 1996. The project was conceived by Mick Jagger as a way to promote the new record, “Beggars Banquet.” The made-for-BBC TV production was directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg.

The cost is $10.
