witf to present early screening of 'Pearl Jam Twenty' at Appalachian Brewing Company

Written by witf.org | Oct 6, 2011 4:49 PM

In celebration of its 20 year anniversary, Pearl Jam is set to release the feature film Pearl Jam Twenty, a definitive portrait of the band as told by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker and music journalist, Cameron Crowe. The captivating documentary gives fans and audiences an intimate first glimpse into Pearl Jam’s journey, culled from more than 1,200 hours of rarely and never-before-seen footage, more than 24 hours of recent interviews with the band, as well as live footage of their spellbinding concert performances.

Pearl Jam Twenty is scheduled to air on witf on Friday October 21 at 9 p.m. However, through special rights granted by PBS, witf will host an advance screening at Appalachian Brewing Company’s Abbey Bar on Tuesday, October 18. The event will be hosted by witf Multimedia News Director (and self-avowed Pearl Jam fan) Tim Lambert. The event will begin at 7 p.m. with 90’s trivia. DVD’s, official PJ bootleg CD’s of shows, concert posters and vinyl singles from the Pearl Jam fan club will be among the items given as door and trivia prizes. The screening is open to the public and free of charge. The Abbey Bar will be open as well. Food and drinks will be served at the cost of the patrons. Appalachian Brewing Company is located at 50 North Cameron Street, Harrisburg, Pa.
