Bruce Springsteen's 'Western Stars' film hitting area theaters in October

Bruce Springsteen’s docu-concert “Western Stars” will receive a special two-night screening next month.

The film’s Fathom Events showings at 7 p.m. Oct. 19 and 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Oct. 23 will feature behind-the-scenes material with Springsteen and unreleased music from his vault, providing fans with an extra dose of The Boss.

“Western Stars,” which debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival, includes a performance of the full album of the same name – Springsteen’s first in five years – with a 30-piece orchestra set in a nearly 100-year-old barn.

Bruce Springsteen's "Western Stars" is coming to theaters in October 2019.

The film was directed by longtime Springsteen collaborator Thom Zimmy, as well as Springsteen himself (marking his directorial debut).

In Atlanta, the two “Western Stars” screenings will be shown at AMC Phipps Plaza 14, Regal Atlantic Station Stadium 18 and Regal Hollywood 24. Tickets are $13.61 and can be purchased in advance at and participating theater box offices.

Following the special screenings, “Western Stars” will open on Oct. 25.
