“DO IT AGAIN: ONE MAN’S QUEST TO REUNITE THE KINKS” PREMIERS IN CHICAGO SEPTEMBER 23 AT METRO
Metro is pleased to work with the Chicago International Movies and Music Festival to present the Chicago premier of Geoff Edgers’ film “Do It Again: One Man’s Quest To Reunite The Kinks” on Thursday September 23rd. This all ages seated event begins at 7pm at Metro and will last approximately 90 minutes. Tickets are $10 and available now.
It seems like every band that ever broke up has gotten back together for a reunion tour (and the Eagles won’t stop reuniting) except one: the Kinks. Intrepid Boston Globe reporter and first-time director Geoff Edgers set out on a one-man mission to reunite one of the best bands ever. Edgers turns the film into a meditation on the power of music and his own chance to testify on his love for the Kinks.
His quest took him around the world and into interviews with fellow Kinks fans Sting, Zooey Deschanel, Robyn Hitchcock, and others. Can Edgers get Ray and Dave Davies to talk to each other, let alone share a stage again? Find out when you watch “Do It Again” at its Chicago premier!

What people are saying about the film – “Do it Again is a movie about extreme fandom, mid-life crisis, the joy of making music, and the madness of the Davies brothers. Geoff Edgers is compelling.” – Tom Perrotta, author of Election, Little Children “Should warm the hearts of anyone who ever swooned to ‘Lola’ or ‘Waterloo Sunset.’ ” – Ty Burr, The Boston Globe
