Martin Scorsese's Rolling Stones concert film 'Shine a Light' screens at ShoWest
Everybody is familiar with Mick Jagger’s lips, but a select crowd of about 100 VIPs got an up-close glimpse at all of the rock legend’s dubious dental features late last night at ShoWest, the movie industry’s annual convention in Las Vegas. At a special early IMAX screening of Shine a Light — Martin Scorsese’s feature film chronicling two concerts that the Rolling Stones played in New York in 2006 — audience members were treated to a rambunctious version of “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” a strange take on “As Tears Go By,” and an extremely intimate look at the grizzled features of Jagger, Keith Richards, Ron Wood, and Charlie Watts. (Keith Richards’ face on a seven-story-tall screen? Thanks, IMAX!) Also writ ultra-large: special guests Bill and Hillary Clinton, Jack White, and Christina Aguilera.
Dignitaries in attendance included Steve Bing (who was a producer on the film) and Heidi Fleiss (who sat next to said producer on the film). Some skipped out early (it was well after midnight, after all), but they’ll have a chance to see Shine a Light in theaters with the rest of the country when it opens on April 4.
