This IMAX production, shot during the Rolling Stones’ 1990 Steel Wheels tour, is the first concert movie – and the first feature-length film – to be made in the IMAX format. It is widely regarded as the best film of the legendary rock band in concert and one of the greatest concert films ever made. Roger Ebert declared, “no other musical film in my experience has so overwhelmed the eyes and ears, drawing us into the feeling and texture of a rock concert.” Rolling Stones at the Max played to rave reviews in select cities around the world.
