The Doors' iconic 1968 gig at the Hollywood Bowl is set to be screened in cinemas for one night only later this year.
The Doors: Live At The Bowl ’68 Special Edition will screen in cinemas worldwide on November 4, and feature a special conversation with the band’s surviving members, John Densmore and Robby Krieger.
The eagerly-awaited event was curated to mark 50 years of L.A. WOMAN, and will feature previously unseen performance footage from the gig.
Discussing the screening, Krieger said: “The magic that has been done to enhance the picture and sound quality of this show will make everyone feel as though they have a front row seat at the Hollywood Bowl.”

The Doors are slated to reissue L.A. WOMAN on December 3 to celebrate five decades of the brilliant album. The new reissue will feature a 3xCD/1xLP box set of a newly remastered version of the LP, alongside two bonus discs of unreleased material.
It follows a recent reissue of the band’s fifth album, Morrison Hotel. Released last October, the double CD/LP deluxe edition of the acclaimed 1970 album contained the original record which had been subsequently remastered by the band’s longtime engineer and mixer Bruce Botnick. It will also include over 60 minutes of unreleased studio outtakes.
In other Doors news, Robby Krieger has announced his debut memoir, Set The Night On Fire: Living, Dying, And Playing Guitar With The Doors, which will shed some light on the band’s history.
The memoir will be published on October 12 via Little, Brown and Company, and promises to reveal entirely new aspects about the band’s mythological career.
A description of the 300+-page book says readers can expect to learn about “never-before-told stories from The Doors’ vital years” as well as new perspectives on the band’s iconic moments.
