Head “back to the field” for 45th anniversary screening

Woodstock the film @

This August marks the 45th anniversary of the Woodstock Music and Art Fair that kicked off on August 15, 1969. To celebrate, the Bethel Woods Center for the Arts is inviting guests to come “Back to the Field” on Friday, August 15 for a free screening of Woodstock: The Director’s Cut. It’s an opportunity to watch the film on the actual site where a half-million young people gathered 45 years ago for the historic festival. The field will open to guests at 7 p.m. and the film will begin at 8:30 p.m.


The four-hour director’s cut of the 1970 Oscar-winning documentary features some of the greatest rock ’n’ roll performers of all time. Admission to the event is free, but a $5-per-person donation is encouraged to benefit the preservation of the historic Woodstock festival site. For more information, visit www.bethelwoodscenter.org.
