More Info IMDb

Sponsored by Austin's greatest music store, End of an Ear Records, and Austin's most essential vintage furniture and decor store, Room Service.

Aurally explosive on record and visually explosive on the screen, THE WALL traces the life of the fictional protagonist Pink Floyd (Bob Geldof, loosely based on original Floyd frontman Syd Barrett) from his boyhood days in war-torn England to his self-imposed isolation as a world-renowned rock star. As he festers in his hotel room, hiding from managers (Bob Hoskins), groupies (NEAR DARK's Jenny Wright) and an estranged wife (Eleanor David), elements of his abusive childhood come back to haunt him until he begins to descend into absolute madness - leading to a climax that is as questionably cathartic as it is destructive. Punctuated by the amazing animation of artist Gerald Scarfe.

Tickets go on sale Friday June 22nd.
