Independent marketing and distribution company Abramorama will re-release Brett Morgen’s Kurt Cobain documentary “Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck” this August for a theatrical run. Prior to Abramorama’s re-release, “Montage of Heck” hit the festival circuit and played an extremely limited release in the U.S. (just three theaters), while getting a big international release from Universal Pictures and an exclusive debut on HBO. The critically acclaimed documentary was described by Rolling Stone as “the most intimate rock doc ever,” and it provides audiences with an unflinching look at Cobain’s artistry, talent and abbreviated life. 

Abramorama’s re-release will thus provide even more opportunity for audiences to watch Morgen’s rock doc, one that he believes was”designed to be experienced in cinemas.”

“We love rock and roll movies at Abramorama,” said Abramorama President and CEO Richard Abramowitz. “Neil Young, The National, Anvil — our list goes on. ‘Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck’ is right at the top. We are privileged to put the film in theaters, where it belongs, so the faithful can relive the concert experience.”

The film will be available at the IFC Center in New York and ArcLight Cinemas in Los Angeles in August.
