Reinventing Elvis

This screening is FREE!

The merry prankster spirits of Jimmy Buffett and Jim Harrison made themselves known after our screening of ALL THAT IS SACRED yesterday, knocking out the power throughout Key West just as Tom McGuane took the stage for a Q&A! As a result, we will be screening the original 1973 film TARPON for FREE on Sunday night at the Perry Hotel Key West. All are welcome to join us at 7pm for the this outdoor screening, followed by the previously scheduled REINVENTING ELVIS.

On Dec. 3, 1968, NBC aired a live performance by Elvis Presley, staged at its Burbank studios. The onetime King of Rock’n’Roll hadn’t given a concert in seven years, and his return to the spotlight electrified the nation. REINVENTING ELVIS: THE ’68 COMEBACK tells the story of that moment, as recounted by Steve Binder, the director-producer who smartly framed Elvis as a vital contemporary artist—not an oldies act.

Loaded with sizzling flashback clips from the original broadcast, along with testimonies from modern-day hitmakers and critics, the documentary argues for the greatness of a legend that never should have been in question.

No tickets required; seating is first come, first served.

Director: Steve Binder
Runtime: 110
