SOLD OUT – A Celebration of Bruce Springsteen’s The River, The Ties That Bind Preview Screening

Please note this event is SOLD OUT.

The Friends of the BruceSpringsteen Special Collection, along with Monmouth University Center for the Arts and
Backstreets.com announce a special event to celebrate the 35th anniversary
of the release of The River and the forthcoming release
of The Ties That Bind: The River Collection box set.

The event will include a special guest appearance by Grammy- and Emmy-winning filmmaker Thom Zimny who will be introducing the film, as well as a big-screen preview presentation of Zimny’s new documentary The Ties That Bind, which focuses on the making of Bruce Springsteen’s fifth album, The River. The film contains rare photos and period concert footage, as well as commentary and solo acoustic guitar performances from Bruce. As an added bonus, Thom will also present a special one hour big-screen preview cut of the new Zimny-edited concert film Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band: The River Tour, Tempe 1980. Both films will be included in the forthcoming box-set The Ties That Bind: The River Collection, which will be released worldwide on December 4, 2015.

A Celebration of Bruce Springsteen’s The River, The Ties That Bind Preview Screening will mark the New Jersey premiere of New Jersey native Thom Zimny’s The Ties That Bind documentary, as well as a unique extended preview of the Zimny-edited Tempe 1980 film. Bruce Springsteen: A Photographic Journey, a traveling photography exhibition curated by the GRAMMY Museum Los Angeles, features 45 iconic images of Bruce Springsteen. The exhibit serves to document a great American music legend, and will feature photos taken by noted Springsteen photographers Danny Clinch, Ed Gallucci, Eric Meola, Pamela Springsteen and Frank Stefanko will be on view in the Rechnitz Gallery before the film.

All proceeds from the film screening will benefit The Bruce Springsteen Special Collection at Monmouth University.
