ITHACA, N.Y. — The State Theatre of Ithaca and ABRAMORAMA Films Presents: Pearl Jam: Let’s Play Two; A film by Danny Clinch on Thursday, October 26th at 7pm.
Let’s Play Two is a concert film that chronicles Pearl Jam’s legendary performances at Wrigley Field during the Chicago Cubs historic 2016 season. With Chicago being a hometown to Eddie Vedder, Pearl Jam has forged a relationship with the city, the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field that is unparalleled in the world of sports and music.
From Ten to Lightning Bolt, the concert film shuffles through Pearl Jam’s ever-growing catalog of originals and covers — spanning the band’s 25-year career. The film includes exclusive interviews and a behind-the-scenes look as the Wrigleyville neighborhood transitions seamlessly from the atmosphere of a Cubs’ win to the anticipation of, and preparation for, the concerts.
Through the eyes of renowned director/photographer Danny Clinch and the voice of Pearl Jam, the film showcases the journey of this special relationship — using the past and present of both the band and the Chicago Cubs through the music, the sweat and the eternal hopes of being both: a Cubs fan and Pearl Jam fan.
