A new 'Tribute' documentary film about The DOORS founder/keyboardist RAY MANZAREK has been announced by The Doors in conjunction with Trafalgar Releasing. The film, 'Break on Thru – A Celebration of Ray Manzarek,' is scheduled for a one-night only, worldwide screening on February 12th...the keyboard player's date of birth. Manzarek, who died in May 2013 at age 74, is credited in the film's press release as being, "the beating heart of the Doors and the architect of their intoxicating keyboard sound."  The Manzarek movie is described as being a 'hybrid concert and documentary,' and will feature concert footage from the 2016 performance in Los Angeles featuring the survivng members of The Doors, Robby Krieger and John Densmore. That show at The Fonda Theater marked the first time in 15 years that the 2 musicians appeared together onstage. The set list from the concert consists of Doors songs performed by Messrs. Densmore and Krieger joined by a cast of all-star guest musicians. In addition to the live material, the film will feature footage of The Doors that includes archival interviews with Manzarek and Jim Morrison, plus new conversations with Densmore and Krieger.
