In 2016, The Lumineers returned to their former home of Brooklyn, NY for an unforgettable taping of Live from the Artists Den at the majestic Kings Theatre. The upcoming cinema release of The Lumineers: Live from the Artists Den is the first-ever screening of the complete performance and includes three unreleased songs and never-before-seen interview footage. Fans will be delighted to hear that the live concert film will be joined by the band’s celebrated short film III, marking the first time it is being released wide to audiences on the big screen. III made its world premiere in the special events category at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). The long-awaited cinema release of The Lumineers: Live from the Artists Den offers fans an extraordinary opportunity to witness the band’s most intimate creative work to date, while also supporting movie theatres and independent cinemas across the country.
The Lumineers’ Wesley Schultz says about the theatrical release, “Pairing our Artists Den show from the Kings Theatre with the film III, the motion picture companion to our album of the same name, is truly special. We are excited to partner with CineLife to bring our film to the world, providing a unique night of both a live show and a visual album.”
