The Alice Cooper movie ‘Live From The Astroturf, Alice Cooper’ will screen in the USA and UK in October.

‘Live from the Astroturf, Alice Cooper’ was made by superfan Chris Penn, who owns a record store in Dallas. He managed to get the original Alice Cooper band featuring Michael Bruce, Dennis Dunaway and Neal Smith. (The original lead guitarist Glen Buxton died in 1997 of viral pneumonia).

The UK premiere will take place at the iconic and intimate Castle Cinema in Hackney, London, on Wednesday 09th October between 21:00 and 22:30. This date has been specially selected as it coincides with Alice Cooper being in the capital (he performs at the O2 Arena, Greenwich, the following night). The event will be attended by super-fans, film crew and both past and present members of the Alice Cooper family. This will include Dennis Dunaway, former Alice Cooper bass player, who will also premiere his Rock Cinema Short, Cold, Cold Coffin. Cindy Smith Dunaway who created the band’s early glam look will also be in attendance. Ryan Roxie current lead guitarist for Alice Cooper who sat in for the late Glen Buxton at the event in 2015 as well as Chris Penn the man responsible for the reunion will be on hand to answer questions too. Brian Cichocki director of Cold Cold Coffin will be making the trek to London also.

The Los Angeles premiere will occur October 14, 2019 8pm at the W Hotel Hollywood. There will be a Q+A with Michael Bruce, Dennis Dunaway, Cindy Dunaway, and Chris Penn moderated by Howie Pyro (Intoxica Radio/Danzig/D Generation) & Keith Morris (Author & Singer of OFF!/FLAG/Circle Jerks/Black Flag) post screening as well as an afterparty at The Viper Room where Michael and Dennis will sit in with the house band that evening.
A soundtrack from ‘Live from the Astroturf, Alice Cooper’ was released earlier this year fro Record Store Day. A vinyl 7” featured the songs ‘I’m Eighteen’ and ‘Is It My Body’. The single was the best-selling Record Store Day release ever.
