THE SOUND OF STYX LIVE:
THE MAKING OF THE GRAND ILLUSION/PIECES OF EIGHT CONCERT FILM
Columbia College's Film Row Cinema 1104 S Wabash Ave - 8th Floor
EARS is pleased to team up with the Chicago International Movies & Music Festival (CIMMfest) and Columbia College in a showing of the 2011 film, STYX LIVE: THE GRAND ILLUSION/PIECES OF EIGHT. This outstanding concert film highlights a live performance of two of the Chicago-born group’s multi-platinum albums. It was filmed at the historic Orpheum Theatre in Memphis, with 11 HD cameras. We can say that this is one of the best concert films ever made- absolutely technically superb.
There will be an interactive live Q&A with the talented individuals who made the movie happen following the screening. Executive Producer Terry Fryer, Audio MIxer/Producer Gary Loizzo, Recording Engineer Timothy Powell, Mastering Engineer Danny Leake, Executive/Film Producer Stephen Warner, and Video Wall Content Director Steven A. Jones will be joined by Styx founder James "JY" Young in a lively discussion of the making of this cinematic gem. This serves as a preview of the amazing CIMMfest that officially begins on May 1st.
