Neil Young: Harvest Time (Final Screening)

3:00pm - Friday, Dec 30, 2022

Join us at the Rio Theatre as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Canadian rock music legend Neil Young's iconic album, "Harvest," with screenings of the new documentary NEIL YOUNG: HARVEST TIME.

Created between January and September 1971, this docu-film takes us on an intimate journey to Young’s farm in Northern California for the ‘Harvest Barn’ sessions, to London for an iconic performance with the London Symphony Orchestra and to Nashville where the then 20 something Neil Young worked on various tracks of this signature album. The feature, NEIL YOUNG: HARVEST TIME, is a fan piece that has never been seen before. Performance and rehearsal content is intertwined into creative storytelling and includes most of the tracks from album "Harvest" (released in 1972) including “Heart of Gold”, “A Man Needs A Maid”, “Alabama” and “Old Man”.

In addition to the film, this screening event includes an introduction by Neil Young, recorded exclusively for movie theatre audiences. Hear Neil highlight the significance of Harvest, 50 years after its release, and how the recording of the album and the movie came together. With Neil Young, Jack Nitzsche, Ben Keith, Tim Drummond, Kenny Buttrey, John Harris.

Says Young, "This is a big album for me. 50 years ago. I was 24, maybe 23 and this album made a big difference in my life. I played with some great friends and it's really coolthat that this album has lasted so long. I had a great time and now when I listen to it, I think I was really just lucky to be there. I hope you enjoy this story, which is ‘Harvest Time,’ and which talks about everything that happened. And now people all around the world can see it at the movies.”
