We are excited to present this 2021 documentary featured in the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival, distributed by Lightyear Entertainment. Get ready to sit out on our lawn and enjoy one of the limited screenings of the break out film! There we will be a no host bar serving select wines and beers along with non-alcoholic beverages. Light refreshments will be served.

When a-ha’s breakthrough hit “Take on Me” shot to #1 on the Billboard charts in 1985, it turned its three young band members into global superstars overnight. While the iconic song and its groundbreaking music video remain ubiquitous to this day, the story of a-ha didn’t end there. After 35 years, a deep catalog of 11 studio albums and 55 million units sold – despite controversies and disagreements – a-ha continues to record music and play to packed arenas around the world. Following Mags, Morten and Pal over a period of four years, a-ha: The Movie provides unprecedented access to the inner workings of the band as well as a career-spanning look at one of the most enduring and beloved acts in pop music history.

 

"This look at the before and, more importantly, the after of a-ha’s moment in the Top 40...counteracts the notion that their story ended along with the decade that made them famous.” Rolling Stone
