The Doors: Break On Thru – A Celebration of Ray Manzarek

The Doors Break On Thru

Celebrate some of rock’s biggest legends with The Doors: Break on Thru – A Celebration of Ray Manzarek, a documentary/concert film hybrid from Trafalgar Releasing.

Filmed at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles in 2016, the concert brought surviving Doors members Robby Krieger and John Densmore together on stage for the first time in 15 years. Along with such guests as Taylor Hawkins of the Foo Fighters, Robert DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots, and Ozzy Osbourne, they played in honor of their late bandmate Ray Manzarek, who passed away in 2013. To supplement the performances, the film also includes rare behind the scenes footage as well as new and archival interviews.

Playing for two nights only, this theatrical presentation will premiere on what would have been Manzarek’s 81st birthday.
