Movies to watch if you miss live events

If you are missing being part of a live audience as much as we are here at The Clayton Center, you might enjoy the advice offered in a recent article in the International Ticketing Association’s online newsletter Access.

In the article, titled “Top 10 Movies If You’re Missing Live Events,” Teddy Durgin suggests that the next best thing to watching or attending concerts, games, plays, and other live events can be watching movies about concerts, games, plays, and other live events.  

Of course, if you’re missing live music, you can join us on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM for our Facebook livestream concert series. (This week’s featured musician is Bruce Naegelen.) You can also search your favorite performers online to see if they are streaming any musical performances.  

Then, if you’d still like to watch a movie about live performances, check out the following:  
“Bohemian Rhapsody” for the classic rock enthusiast. 
“Straight Outta Compton” for those who enjoy rap music. 
“Walk the Line” for old-school country fans.  
And there’s always the mockumentary “This Is Spinal Tap.” 

Other movies suggested by Durgin include:  
Best Movie if You Miss Live Theatre: “Birdman.”  
Best Movie if You Miss the Ballet: “Black Swan.”  
Best Movie If You Miss Going to a Museum: “Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian.”  
Best Movie if You Miss Spring Training and Major League Baseball: “Major League.” 
Best Movie if You Miss March Madness Basketball: “Glory Road” 
Best Movie if You Miss NBA Basketball: “Space Jam.”  
Best Movie if You Miss NHL Hockey: “Miracle.”
