The Rolling Stones Olé Olé Olé!: A Trip Across Latin America

When: Mon., Dec. 12, 8 p.m. 2016

Just when you thought the words, "Ladies and gentleman, the Rolling Stones!" had lost their power to thrill comes a documentary to prove you wrong. This doc about the Stones' recent tour through Latin America is far from the expected tour journal, although it does provide the requisite behind-the-scenes moments and incendiary performances of iconic hits. The film derives drama from its culminating concert in Cuba, where rock 'n' roll had been banned for decades. But the Stones are still revered there with a depth of feeling that makes the event feel nothing short of momentous. The film is beautifully shot, the locations are dazzling, and it's no small kick to hang out with Keith, Mick, Charlie, and Ron, wiser, more wizened, and more charming than ever. It's a vital reminder that reports of the death of rock music, at least as a societal force, have been greatly exaggerated. For one night only, the doc screens at Regal Crossroads in Cary, Carmike in Raleigh, and Carmike Wynnsong in Durham, courtesy of Fathom Events. —David Klein
