Image Entertainment, Inc. announced today that it has acquired the rights to "The Who At Kilburn: 1977," which has not been available or seen publicly since it was first filmed almost 31 years ago.

As part of its agreement with Spitfire Pictures, Image has secured all worldwide home video, broadcast, digital and non-theatrical rights to the concert and related footage, with the exception of Japan.
