Welcome to the Machine: Pink Floyd at the Movies

One of the most successful rock bands of all time, Pink Floyd defined psychedelia for a generation of listeners and then went beyond, creating a series of concept albums that were as philosophical in scope as they were technically precise. From the dreamy existential musings of Dark Side of the Moon to the anxious anti-authoritarian screed of Pink Floyd The Wall, the English four-piece became an ideal soundtrack to images of rebellion, revolution, and free love in the paranoid haze of the 1970s. Our series includes their thrilling 1972 concert film, ambitious projects directed by Barbet Schroeder and Michelangelo Antonioni, and their landmark live action/animated rock opera, plus David Gilmour’s latest concert as our centerpiece.
