The Hippodrome Cinema will be a part of music-film history.

The cinema team is excited to participate in the one-night special screening of “David Gilmour: Live at Pompeii.” It is one of 2,000 theaters worldwide that will be playing this film on the same day — and only for that day.

The concert film will be screened Sept. 13 at 7:30 p.m., and $15 tickets are on sale now. “David Gilmour: Live at Pompeii” captures one of the first-ever rock concerts for an audience in the legendary Roman amphitheatre.

Patrons will not want to miss this one-time opportunity to see Gilmour’s out-of-this-world performance, complete with lasers, pyrotechnics, a huge screen with incredible film elements and, of course, their favorite Pink Floyd classics. The concert’s set list includes “One of These Days,” “Wish You Were Here” and many of Gilmour’s solo tracks.

“In the film, Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour performs songs from the entirety of his catalog, and this is such an audio and visual experience,'” said Jason Potak, cinema program manager. “It serves as a reminder of how influential one musician can be.”

This nostalgic film will take attendees back to their days of Walkmans and teenage angst. Tickets can be purchased by calling (352)375-4477 or visiting thehipp.org/cinema.
