    For the first time ever, Jimi Hendrix's classic, history-making performance at Woodstock in 1969 will be shown in theaters. So if you weren't born in the '60s and didn't witness it live, then you can experience it vicariously.

    A special-edition theatrical presentation, Hendrix 70: Live At Woodstock, assembled from an archive of footage by Academy Award-winning director Michael Wadleigh, will cruise into select cinemas on November 26 and later.

    The movie also features interviews with band members and Woodstock organizer Michael Lang. It's worth it just to watch the guitar god rip through his rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" so if you love Hendrix and rock music, then pony up the cash and buy a ticket to the show.

    Songs performed in original sequence:
    Message To Love
    Spanish Castle Magic
    Red House
    Lover Man
    Foxy Lady
    Jam Back At The House
    Izabella
    Fire
    Voodoo Child (Slight Return)
    Star Spangled Banner
    Purple Haze
