Tom Petty would have celebrated his 71st birthday on October 20th. To commemorate the occasion, the producers of an acclaimed documentary that chronicles the making of one of Petty’s most critically-revered albums is coming to movie theaters. “Somewhere You Feel Free: The Making of ‘Wildflowers'” is set to be shown on Petty’s birthday in select theaters across the United States, with encore showings taking place the following day, according to distributor Trafalgar Releasing. The film follows Petty from 1993 to 1995, when he and producer Rick Rubin were involved in the production of the 1994 solo album. “This cinema event will celebrate the music and life of Tom Petty on his birthdate, offering a chance for fans across the globe to congregate and see the film and hear the music together in a high quality immersive theatrical experience,” says Trafalgar VP Kymberli Frueh. “The legacy of his creativity and the legendary songs he created at this seminal time lives on in our playlists.” Would you spend money to watch something in a theater when you can watch it on a streaming network at home?
