The Doors: Live At The Bowl ’68 Special Edition

A concert experience like no other, The Doors: Live At The Bowl ‘68 brings the magic of The Doors to cinemas for a special edition screening of the historic event.

Filmed July 5th, 1968 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Live At The Bowl captures the band performing in their own hometown at the apex of their popularity. Directed by the Doors’ keyboard player Ray Manzarek, the film is an important document of counterculture broadly, and California culture specifically. Supporting the release of their third LP “Waiting For The Sun”, the eclectic setlist ranges from familiar crowd pleasers (“Alabama Song”) to extended jam sessions (“When The Music’s Over”) that put the entire range of musical styles the band was known for on display. 

With sound and image meticulously remastered from the original camera negatives and multi-track tapes, The Doors: Live At The Bowl ’68 is a film designed for the full theatrical experience.


“The magic that has been done to enhance the picture and sound quality of this show will make everyone feel as though they have a front row seat at the Hollywood Bowl.” — Robby Krieger, The Doors guitarist
