There's a new Doors documentary on the way, and it's set to arrive at a big-screen cinema near you. The Doors: Break on Thru -- A Celebration of Ray Manzarek is the name of the movie, which will premiere on February 12 in cinemas around the world. Find details and tickets here.

The doc was captured at the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles back in 2016, surviving Doors Robby Krieger and John Densmore performed for the first time in more than 15 years alongside a cavalcade of guest stars including Taylor Hawkins and Rami Jaffe (Foo Fighters) and Brian Ray (Paul McCartney). It was a benefit show raising money for Stand Up to Cancer.

“It was such an honor to play with these world-class musicians in a tribute to our magical keyboard player,” Densmore said in a press statement.

Alongside live performances, the doc will also feature archival footage and interviews with Manzarek. Watch the trailer below.
