Alice's Restaurant 50th Anniversary Concert
It was fifty Thanksgivings ago, fifty years ago on Thanksgiving - Arlo Guthrie celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of the events that snowballed into the Alice's Restaurant Massacree, his iconic talking blues narrative that has become an established part of the Thanksgiving tradition, with an unprecedented show. Backed by his band of friends, Arlo regales the audience with the Massacree in its entirety, along with many of his best-loved classics. Projected exclusive, rare photos from Guthrie's archives and an amazing lightshow also make for a remarkable multimedia experience. Four-time Emmy® Award-winning director Jim Brown captures this memorable concert commemorating the half-century that has passed since Arlo took out the garbage, landed on the Group W bench, and inspired the Alice's Restaurant Massacree that became an anti-war, anti-stupid national phenomenon.

VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
