Pink Floyd Live At PompeiiOne of the most iconic concert films of all time took a completely different tack to all the others at the time, and was shot without an audience in attendance. The spectacular Pink Floyd Live At Pompeii had an interesting background, with the issues of the location fairly well known. Our exclusive, lengthy interview with director Adrian Maben (with some questions set by none other than Storm Thorgerson!) covers a lot of the issues and background to the production and is well worth a read.

For those in London in August this year, there's a special opportunity to see the film under (hopefully) a nice, starry sky. The Barbican are showing it in their Sculpture Court on Tuesday, August 23rd at 8:30pm as part of an outdoor cinema season during the summer, and tickets are now available.

There isn't reserved seating - they will open the area an hour before the screening for people to choose where they want to sit. Headphones will be provided for the sound, as there won't be any speakers outside. More details are available about the event here.

Our thanks to Lee McLoughlin and Andy Finn for getting in touch with the info about the screening.
