Echo in the Canyon

  • The Newtown Theatre 120 North State Street Newtown, PA, 18940 (map)

Witness the birth of the California sound

In the 1960s, like-minded songwriters and performers moved to the winding-road Eden in the area of Los Angeles known as Laurel Canyon.

On Friday, August 9, the Newtown Theatre will screen Echo in the Canyon, a unique documentary exploring the music scene in Laurel Canyon and the music of iconic groups such as The Byrds, The Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield, and The Mamas and the Papas.

The film contains candid conversations and performances with Brian Wilson, Ringo Starr, Michelle Phillips, Eric Clapton, Stephen Stills, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Roger McGuinn and Jackson Browne, as well as contemporary musicians they influenced such as Tom Petty (in his very last film interview), Beck, Fiona Apple, Cat Power, Regina Spektor and Norah Jones.

The screening starts at 7:30 PM, and the doors open at 6:30 PM.

Beer, wine, and concessions will be available before the film.
