Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and the Band

Thursday, December 5

Film Screening  |  7pm  |  Doors open at 6:30pm
Reception  |  6pm  |  Emerson Lobby

The Bozeman Doc Series presents the Montana premiere of the critically acclaimed new documentary Once Were Brothers: Robbie Robertson and the Band. The screening will be preceded at 6:00pm by a reception featuring food and drink in the Emerson lobby and the first of our bi-annual Bozeman Doc Series silent auctions featuring items from sponsors such as The Saffron Table, The Lark, Bozeman Spirits, and many more. 

Once Were Brothers is a confessional, cautionary, and occasionally humorous tale of Robertson’s young life and the creation of one of the most enduring groups in the history of popular music, The Band. From their early days as the rockabilly outfit The Hawks, to their turbulent days as the band behind Bob Dylan on his first plugged-in tour, to their bittersweet final performance captured in Martin Scorsese’s The Last Waltz, the film provides an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at one of the most influential bands of their era. The film blends rare archival footage, photography, iconic songs and interviews with Robertson’s friends and collaborators includ­ing Martin Scorsese, Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, and more.

“Engaging, lively, introspective…a terrific storytelling arc, a treasure trove of archival footage and, naturally, those iconic songs…serves as a valuable reminder of what The Band left behind.” The Hollywood Reporter

The silent auction will include: gift certificates from several of our sponsors, including The Lark, Treeline Coffee, and The Saffron Table, gift boxes from Bozeman Spirits, a massage from Reintegrative Massage, passes and schwag from the Bozeman Doc Series, and much more.
