Announcement: Cleveland screening for The Lemmy Movie – 1/30 at The Beachland

For rock and metal fans alike, Lemmy: 49% Motherf**Ker, 51% Son Of A Bitch is one of the most anticipated film releases of 2011.  And as it happens, co-director Wes Orshoski (who helped to produce and direct the new film with Greg Olliver) is a Cleveland native.

A mutual friend put us in touch with Wes to help arrange a hometown screening for the flick and with the help of some good friends, we're pleased to announce a Cleveland date for the Lemmy movie which will screen on Sunday, January 30th at the Beachland Ballroom at 8pm.

Admission is $8 and the evening will feature a special introduction by Orshoski prior to the start of the film and music from Cleveland tribute band Motorhead USA to close out the night!

The Cleveland Lemmy screening is being presented with the help and support of Damage Case Films, The Ohio Independent Film Festival88.7 WJCU, Auburn Records, Sixty Seconds of Heaven and Broken Headphones.

So what's this "Lemmy" movie about, anyway?

Well, since you asked, here's the official blah blah blah on the film:

Over four decades, Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister has registered an immeasurable impact on music history. Nearly 65, he remains the living embodiment of the rock and roll lifestyle, and this feature-length documentary tells his story, one of a hard-living rock icon who continues to enjoy the life of a man half his age.

Shot on a combination of High Definition and Super 16mm film, "Lemmy" (directed by Greg Olliver and Wes Orshoski) includes interviews with friends, family, bandmates past and present and such admirers/peers as Metallica, Slash, Dave Grohl (Nirvana/Foo Fighters), Ozzy Osbourne, Peter Hook (Joy Division/New Order), actor Billy Bob Thornton, wrestling superstar Triple H, Alice Cooper, Mick Jones of The Clash, and many more.

Called "pure gold" by WIRED, "Lemmy" made its world premiere in March 2010 at the South by Southwest Film and Music Festival, and has since collected rave reviews at film festivals around the globe. Variety remarked "'Lemmy' rocks," and The Hollywood Reporter noted, "You don't have to be a metalhead to love 'Lemmy.'"

Trailers?  Oh yeah, we have those too!

Check out the Lemmy website for a complete list of upcoming screenings nationwide.  You can also pre-order the DVD and Blu-Ray.

I'll leave you with this awesome photo of Greg and Wes with Lemmy!  We'll look forward to seeing you all on Sunday, January 30th at the Beachland!

    Shit. I wish I lived in Cleveland to be there for this. What a great share here, Matt. I didn’t know this was coming out. I am all over this. The title alone is enough to make me go.

    Since I moved to London, I have watched a few doccos on Leem/Motorhead. The guy is unmistakably the real deal.

    Dave Grohl is real-deal, too. Love anything that guy does. “Fresh Pot!”

    Do you know the name of the song in the 2nd teaser vid?
