What a great birthday present for Jerry. Seeing the band on film, like seeing them live, is a one-of-a-kind experience. Show was marred by projectionist muting the sound for the first two numbers. Encore Knocking on Heaven’s Door: Priceless

Such a joy to see the old lineup. I was almost in tears watching Jerry and Brent interact. This was my first meet up. It’s now gonna be on my perpetual calendar. I immediately went home and started pulling out the live concerts on vinyl. Can’t wait u til next year!!! Bravo👏

First time at a "meet up". It was fun and great to see the audience singing, some dancing and clapping at the end of each tune. Would def go again.

So enjoyable .. took me back to the days. They were having such a great time at that show..everyone was smiling and it came through in the music.

The Dead in great form, and Jerry Garcia in a healthy period in his life. A top notch show from an underrated period in the Dead's history. A great run of shows around this time.

Regal Poulsbo; Turn it up!! you play movies louder than the music last night! Other than that it was great to relive the summer tour of '89.

Saw this at Regal Brandywine Town Center, on the outskirts of Wilmington DE. Sound was Great throughout (even if I couldn't feel the Phil bombs or The Beam)! We could have used an actual intermission (old bladders throughout), but no complaints, otherwise. I have this show on DVD, but you can't beat a large screen and great sound.

A tremendous show. Jerry was so into it...smiling...rockin'...interacting with all the band members. Haunting Standing on the Moon! Wonderful rendition of Knockin' On Heaven's Door!

Would have been nice if the sound was on half way through Hell In A Bucket in North Brunswick, NJ.

Any chance to see Jerry smiling and playing his heart out is fun. I’ve seen most of the previous meet ups and this wasn’t my favorite (sound problem during warm up and at beginning of the concert). Plus it just wasn’t loud enough. Same period Alpine show, from a few years ago, was much better. But Jerry close ups and the second set jams were devine.

meh. great let it grow, but i don't agree that jerry was his best or this show was the best when jerry's really jazzed, he breaks out the hummer strum (ask a girl if you don't know what that is). didn't see any of that. and i just never fell for brent. sorry. i like the old way of filming where you can actually see them play - not like the filmer has ADD. anyway, i've seen earlier gd nites films and they were more rockin'. better luck next year i guess...

Loved the film and the presentation in my theater. It is really a cinema verite look, with about 6 cameras capturing the band playing some of their best songs at the heyday of their late 1980's resurgence.

One of the best shows I've every seen. Talk about a Scarlet Fire followed by and Estimated Standing on the Moon. And that Blow Away! Miss you too, Brent.

All we needed was a sun baking us and a few 'twirlers' and it would be perfect.
