CAROLE KING: HOME AGAIN Live in Central Park
A Special Event at the Cinema Art Theater in Lewes
Opening February 9, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater presents a special event, Carole King: Home Again Live in Central Park, a documentary which presents musical icon Carole King’s triumphant May 26, 1973 homecoming concert on The Great Lawn of New York City’s Central Park before an estimated audience of 100,000. Directed by George Scott and produced by Lou Adler and John McDermott, the film presents the complete multi-camera 16mm footage filmed and recorded by Adler in 1973 but never before released.
Alongside the complete performance footage is the behind-the-scenes story of King’s remarkable transformation from an in demand staff songwriter, beloved for such timeless Goffin and King classics as “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” and “Will You Love Me Tomorrow” to an iconic artist in her own right. The May 1973 performance captured King at her critical and commercial peak, basking in the enormous popularity of her definitive album Tapestry. [2022, Us, 80 min, Rating: NR]
