SwordLord Productions and the Riverview Theatre will present a special theatrical screening of the acclaimed Rush documentary entitled Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage at the Riverview Theatre in Minneapolis on Thursday, June 10. Co-directed by Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn, who also directed Metal: A Headbanger's Journey and Iron Maiden: Flight 666, the film shows an unseen side to the Canadian progressive rock band and recounts their decades-long career. McFadyen and Dunn received a $25,000 award on May 1 for Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage being selected by attendees of the Tribeca Film Festival for the festival's 2010 Heineken Audience Award. A review of the film by Variety magazine praises Rush and the directors for a documentary that "should delight devotees and intrigue nonbelievers as it moves to theatrical play." Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage will be shown in select theaters before its June 26 television debut on VH1 and VH1 Classic. The official movie trailer can be viewed below.
