Dolby is bringing the heavy artillery for the event, providing a 22' screen that will fill Brooklyn Bowl's stage, along with a Christie CP2000xb cinema projector, the same kind you would find at AMC or Lowes. This is the first time Dolby has ever brought this type of equipment into a music club instead of a traditional theater. Additionally, the film's original sound engineer, Carl Glanville, will be on hand to ensure that Brooklyn Bowl's acclaimed sound system is tweaked just right.

U2 3D was shot in Buenos Aires, Argentina at River Plate Stadium during their 2006 Vertigo tour. The 14-song film kicks off with the title track "Vertigo", followed by classics such as "Beautiful Day", "Sunday Bloody Sunday", "With or Without You", "Pride (In The Name of Love)", and "Where the Streets Have No Name." U2 3D was widely acclaimed around its release and currently has a 92% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

"I've looked forward to the opportunity to present this film in this room, "said U2 3D producer/ Brooklyn Bowl owner Peter Shapiro. "We're not quite sure how this will play out but there's a real chance that this will be something like fans have never seen."

"It's very cool that we're able to show this movie that represents the National Geographic mission of inspiring people to care about the planet at this amazing venue," said President of National Geographic Entertainment - the film's distributor - David Beal. "Seeing U2 3D at Brooklyn Bowl allows everyone the opportunity to experience U2 in a manner that will truly blur the line between concert and concert film." [Brooklyn Bowl]
