On Feb. 12, a special documentary from The Doors will screen in theaters for one night and one night only.
Break On Thru: A Celebration of Ray Manzarek is a cinematic toast to late keyboardist Ray Manzarek, and looks to be a grand affair commemorating the beloved musician, who passed away in 2013. A short teaser trailer surfaced in December, but now a longer, full-length trailer has made its way online as a more substantial preview of the film to come.
More on the Break On Thru film, from the official news release:
The feature film is a hybrid concert and documentary capturing a 2016 performance in Los Angeles, CA by surviving Doors members John Densmore and Robby Krieger to honor fellow Doors member Ray Manzarek on what would have been his birthday on February 12th.
The setlist from the concert consists of Doors songs performed by John and Robby alongside a cast of all-star guest musicians including Taylor Hawkins and Rami Jaffee (Foo Fighters), Robert DeLeo (Stone Temple Pilots), Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction), Exene and John Doe (X), Warren Haynes (Gov’t Mule), Brian Ray (Paul McCartney),
Andrew Watt, and more.
The film also includes rare archival footage of the band, conversations with Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek, and esteemed music journalist Ben Fong-Torres, as well as new interviews with John and Robby.
