Rec Center in the Spotlight Again: Led Zepplin

The film "Led Zeppelin Played Here" is now showing at AFI Silver Spring.  This WaPo movie review is entertaining and makes me want to go see it.  I wonder if the demolitionists are sad yet that they campaigned for the building the be destroyed and won...  Here's info from the AFI website:

"Led Zeppelin Played Here"

Q&A with filmmaker Jeff Krulik on June 27 & 28, at the 7:45 show!

1969. Man lands on the moon. Half a million strong at Woodstock. SESAME STREET makes its debut...and Led Zeppelin perform in the gym of the Wheaton Youth Center on Georgia Avenue in front of 50 confused teenagers. Or did they? Filmmaker Jeff Krulik explores an enduring local legend, which doubles as microcosm of what was happening nationwide as the rock concert industry took shape. Featuring interviews with rock writers, musicians and fans, and several who claim they were there witnessing history that night.
