The Cure in Orange

1987 / 113min / Digital

DIRECTOR: TIM POPE

The Cure’s 1986 European tour is caught at the crumbling Roman Théâtre Antique d’Orange, a grandiose, picturesque backdrop in front of which Robert Smith, shorn of his trademark thicket of teased and tangled hair, leads the band’s classic lineup through a 23-song set, alternately rocking and seized by fits of melodramatic melancholia. The essential document of one of the last great album groups—and a mighty muscular live act, as it happens—at peak power, shot on 35mm over two day-to-night stretches.

The Cure in Orange is screening as part of the series 4th of July at Metrograph: The Concert Film. Click here for more info.
