Jimi Hendrix's Woodstock Performance Set For Cinema Release

Jimi Hendrix's iconic set from the original Woodstock festival is set to come to a screen near you, as it will be shown on November 29 and December 4 at more than 30 cinemas across the U.K. and in movie theatres globally.

The film, which celebrates what would have been the guitarist's 70th b-day, will play alongside the film Live at Woodstock. That film features interviews with band members Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell, as well as engineer Eddie Kramer and Woodstock promoter Michael Lang.

"This film reflects a legendary event in our history as well as a true pinnacle of Jimi's career," Hendrix's sister Janie said. "We celebrate his 70th birthday as we continue to celebrate his legacy."

The gig footage has been digitally restored and features a new 5.1 audio surround mix by Kramer.
