A new documentary chronicling the making of The Who’s 1973 album Quadrophenia will be screened for one night only in select movie theaters nationwide on July 24.
“The Who: Quadrophenia-Can You See the Real Me?” will feature behind-the-scenes footage capturing the band recording their sixth studio album and second rock opera (the first being Tommy in 1969). Quadrophenia, one of the band’s biggest albums, is set in London and Brighton in 1964 and 1965 and describes the social, musical and psychological happenings from the perspective of an English teenager.
“Can You See the Real Me?” also contains archival concert footage and new interviews with the band’s surviving members, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey.
Advanced tickets for the documentary go on sale today (June 20) and will be screened on July 24 at theaters nationwide. A full list of participating theaters can be found here.
