Cameron Crowe’s Pearl Jam documentary to screen in 15 Irish cinemas.

‘Pearl Jam Twenty’ chronicles the years leading up to the band’s formation, the chaos that ensued soon-after their rise to megastardom, their step back from center stage, and the creation of a trusted circle that would surround them—giving way to a work culture that would sustain them. Told in big themes and bold colors with blistering sound, the film is carved from over 1,200 hours of rarely-seen and never-before seen footage spanning the band’s career. ‘Pearl Jam Twenty’ is the definitive portrait of Pearl Jam: part concert film, part intimate insider-hang, part testimonial to the power of music and uncompromising artists.

‘Pearl Jam Twenty’ will be playing for one night only on September 20th 2011 at the following cinemas:
