D&E has previously worked with Banger Films' Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn in theatrically distributing and marketing their platinum DVD Iron Maiden: Flight 666.
Scot McFadyen: "We learned with our film Flight 666 that a digital theatrical release was a great way to get our film out on the big screen without the daunting expense of a sustained theatrical release. It was also a way to assure that the theatres would be filled with fans experiencing the film with great picture and sound. After all, watching a music film in a packed theatre is always the best way to experience it!"
"D&E Entertainment is very pleased to be working with Scot and Sam again as well as SRO-Anthem and Rounder in giving the critically-acclaimed Rush: Beyond The Lighted Stage the nationwide theatrical release it deserves. The film is an insightful and heartfelt look at Rush, a story that will appeal to fans of all genres of music and film. This is a perfect digital cinema collaboration of an independent film distributor working with award-winning filmmakers, consumers, and our digital theatre partners in creating a win-win situation for everyone," stated Evan Saxon and Doug Kluthe of D&E Entertainment.
