The last time I was at the other-wordly Beacon Theatre was to see PJ Harvey perform from White Chalk, in a show that rang with a fierce Victorian vaudeville jangle. She was gorgeous. That night there was a little typo with the signage in front of the theatre which seems apropos for Shine A Light, Scorsese's new Rolling Stones concert film filmed at the Beacon, opening this weekend. It's been nearly two years since KP and I watched Neil Young: Heart of Gold and I do believe it is a high time for another visit with of legendary figures in iconic spaces in the flickering dark of a downtown Manhattan cinema house.
