This was my first time attending a Grateful Dead Meetup at the Movies event but it won't be my last. It was a great time - terrific sound and cool people - I only wish drive-in movies still existed so it could really be a party!!
The film itself was amazing. Always heard about this show, but to finally see and hear it in top quality was mind-blowing... the boys were really at the top of their game. And any time you might get a little bored, there was footage of some naked hippie to make you laugh! Kudos to the team that produced it, remastered it and made the documentary that showed before. Well done!

Great nostalgia of a band that continues to carry on with loving and sharing and caring. So much more than just the music. got on the bus in 71 and am still on board. Excellent job bringing vintage footage to the big sctreen. Excellent audio. Thank you Regal Royal palm for providing the fans with this never to be forgotten experience. Next time, maybe serve some drinks and apps. Would be lovely.

It was 105 degrees that day and the band was in amazing form ! The movie is very well done love the animation. Garcia was tremendous ! You have to see this ! It will bow you away, it was a benefit to save the Kesey family creamery ! In the fields of Oregon, they cut done trees to make the towers, it was hippydom at its best. Just Freaking Grateful to have seen it !

I am the mother of two deadheads and the fiancee of another one. I enjoyed listening to the music and watching the audience react and how they danced to the melodies. I was especially grateful to see the young Jerry and Bobby perform. It was more meaningful to me since I saw Bobby yesterday on his show and was able to compare Bobby, the older man, to Bobby, the young man. Sallyk

The production quality of the video may be 1972, but the quality of the music and the sound is 2013. Thought the sound was one of the best of any Dead show I have seen either in the theater or on DVD (and I have all the commercially available DVDs). The show itself is vintage Dead and one of their best. Only possible shortcoming was that it seems the site did not have enough lighting to catch the later songs in the show, but it was 1972, a charity event and not a commercial venue which would have had better lighting. A long Dark Star (if you like that, if you don't you have a chance to hit the head or the concession stand). Must see if you are a Dead fan, no matter how old you are. If you are old enough (like me) it is nostalgic, if you are younger you get to see them at what some think was their best period. (Have to wonder how many of the Deadheads there catching rays are now seeing their dermatologists to have lesions removed, we did not use sunblock back then.)
