Awesome: I Fuckin’ Shot That! At The Lighthouse Cinema

The Lighthouse Cinema in Smithfield have lined up two screenings of Awesome: I Fuckin’ Shot That, the Beastie Boys‘ 2006 concert movie recorded with the assistance of 50 fans in Madison Square Garden.

The Beastie Boys let their fans do the shooting as they take the stage of Madison Square Garden for the final date of their “Challah at Your Boy” tour in a concert video that truly puts the viewer right in the middle of all the action. With a mix of fifty DV and Hi-8 cameras distributed to shutter-bug fans and little more instruction than to keep the tapes rolling, director Nathaniel Hornblower and supervising editor Neal Usatin skillfully edit the resulting amateur footage into a kaleidoscopic, rough-edged take on the typically slick, professionally shot concert video.

The screenings are on Saturday 26th & Thursday 31st May. Tickets are on sale now from The Lighthouse Cinema.

ps Lighthouse – fix that fucking typo.
