D&E Entertainment Utilizes Digital Cinema Technology From Access Integrated Technologies And Comprehensive Marketing Campaign To Create A Unique Viewing Experience For Musical Content
On March 20th at 8pm, D&E Entertainment has
been selected by The Black Crowes’ to produce the theatrical premiere of their
new live DVD, Freak N Roll Into… the Fog as it will be presented in High
Definition. This premiere will take place simultaneously in twelve cities,
including New York (Brooklyn), Boston, Philadelphia, Memphis, Daytona Beach,
Austin, Phoenix, Detroit, Seattle, Los Angeles, and San Diego.
This Event enables The Black Crowes to have a Theatrical Release Event to
showcase the High Definition content that can only be experienced via digital
delivery and DLP-Cinema Projectors.
Evan Saxon, Co-President of D&E Entertainment said, “We are very pleased to have
been selected by The Black Crowes to premiere their amazing DVD in High
Definition. This provides fans the opportunity to experience the band with the
best technology available. To further support the band’s visibility we
implemented an effective marketing campaign incorporating radio, Internet,
press, retail and in-theatre exposure to launch the release of the DVD”.
“This is truly a great event for all The Black Crowes fans to see the band’s at
their greatest in the best audio and video possible without actually being at
the event,” said Doug Kluthe, Co-President of D&E Entertainment.
In August 2005, a film crew captured The Black Crowes performing five sold-out
nights at San Francisco’s historic Fillmore Auditorium for the band’s first-ever
DVD, Freak N Roll…Into the Fog, out March 21 on Eagle Rock Entertainment.
Shot in Hi-definition amidst a stage strikingly adorned with hundreds of
electric candles, the 19-song celebration of free-spirited rock ‘n roll clocks
in at two and a half hours. The DVD features originals from the band’s six
studio albums (including “Jealous Again,” “Wiser Time,” “Remedy,” “Soul
Singing,” and an acoustic version of “She Talks to Angels”), special covers that
illuminate their rich musical heritage (Matthew Moore’s Joe Cocker tune “Space
Captain,” Robbie Robertson’s The Band song “The Night They Drove Ol’ Dixie
Down”) and the amorica b-side “Sunday Night Buttermilk Waltz.” In addition, the
DVD includes behind-he-scenes footage of the band backstage and in the streets
and hills of San Francisco.
D&E Entertainment contracted with Access Integrated Technologies (AMEX: AIX) (www.accessitx.com),
the leading provider of digital content management and distribution services for
the Hollywood studios for its digital content delivery system and back office
