Last night we were delighted to get the opportunity to attend the live cinema presentation launch of the amazing Roger Water’s The Wall documentary, streamed live in theatres around the World, both Bangor and Dundonald Omniplex cinemas screened this amazing experience.
The Wall was the 11th Studio Album released by Prog-rockers Pink Floyd in 1979 and following the band’s split Waters, the group’s bassist has spent much of his life producing and touring a live version of the The Wall, this has become the biggest live show in history.
The documentary focuses on the amazing multimedia special effects produced in the show, where a literal wall of large white blocks is built on the stage and used to project vast moving images throughout the performance. Great eye-candy and inspiration for us designers. The film also follows Waters on a journey to visit his grandfather’s and father’s graves who died in each of the World War. The poignant and often emotional journey show what shaped the rocker to produce The Wall album and the stage show.
We really recommend anyone who has a change to get along to see this amazing piece. Below is a trailer for the movie, watch in 4K for the best effect.
It really is worth keeping an eye on Omniplex’s live events, we are especially looking forward to David Suchet in The Importance of Being Earnest screened live from the Vaudeville Theatre.
