Abramorama’s head of music Evan Saxon said, “As Abramorama distributes of some of the best music films ever produced, we are stoked to partner with the amazing team at The Regent to create this Summer Music Documentary Film Series. We can’t think of a better way to experience these films than in a rock club packed with friends and fans and the music played at high volume. It’s a great opportunity to get folks back into our local music venue as well. We’re fans of the rock docs and look forward to programming a music film series with clubs and venues around the world.”
Mitchell Frank, founder of The Regent added, "I'm delighted to announce our rock doc film series at The Regent. We plan to have many more notable rock films coming to the Regent soon. Not only because of our massive sound system and laser projector, making it an immersive experience and something we've always wanted to produce. The Regent is an exceptional place to chill, rock out, grab a slice or a cocktail, and feel the wind blowing like you're in the Maxwell tape commercial."
