One of the greatest concert films ever made sees The Band teaming up with a slew of like-minded heavy hitters for a tear-down-the-walls performance of their greatest hits—the final show they’d play together. Filmed on Thanksgiving Day 1976 in San Francisco and billed as their farewell concert, the group invited luminaries like Bob Dylan, Ronnie Hawkins, Neil Diamond, Joni Mitchell, Dr. John, Van Morrison, Neil Young, Muddy Waters, and many others to join them on the stage in an unforgettable romp through their collective greatest hits, luminously filmed by Martin Scorsese and crew. A can’t-miss film for any fan of rock ‘n’ roll.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
