Despite the riot outside the theater, the screening of the film did take place. Unfortunately, less than half of the 650 invited guests were able to get inside the building. The movie, which was directed by Nirvana collaborator Kevin Kerslake, will be released in select theaters on August 4th and on DVD before the end of the year.
