The Song Remains The Same - L.A. Premiere
Los Angeles Fox Wilshire Theatre hosts the west coast premiere, attended by the band. Jimmy Page: "(The premieres were) held apart by a few days so we could check the cinemas out. It's not as easy a job as you'd think getting the sound right for cinemas. The first time in New York was great, the first time one had sat in an audience. Every time I had seen the film before was with technicians, people with a really critical eye. Then the film really lived for the first time and you could see people getting off on things, applauding and laughing at the right time, generally vibing."
Other charity premieres are held in various major cities including: Toronto, Boston and Dallas, San Francisco and Chicago, (not attended by the band). The Canadian debut is held in Toronto at the Varsity 2 theatre with proceeds donated to the Canadian Save the Children's Fund.
