By Popular Demand, Radiohead "Meeting People is Easy" Screenings Added Through June
Home Video and DVD Release Moved to May 18th

 NEW YORK (ENTERTAINMENT WIRE) - Following sold out screenings in Austin, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Chicago, Capitol Records and Seventh Art Releasing have added additional screenings of the Radiohead film Meeting People Is Easy in Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, Ithaca and Seattle, with additional markets to be confirmed. The film premiered at Austin's South By Southwest music conference in March, and was held over for extra weekends in Los Angeles and New York after all scheduled screenings sold out and fans had to be turned away. With the new screening dates and the broadcast premiere on the film scheduled for May 16th on MTV, the street date of the film has been moved to May 18th from May 4th. An edited 50 minute broadcast version will air on MTV's "120 Minutes" at midnight on Sunday, May 16th as part of a Radiohead special, featuring exclusive interview and performance footage.

 Radiohead have built an impressive following, all the while defying popular conventions in writing, recording and promoting their music. Their last album, OK Computer, stands as an unique achievement in rock and roll history, and was recently selected as one of The Essential Recordings of the '90s by Rolling Stone, along with The Bends. Shot during the year of promotion and touring for the Grammy-winning platinum record, Meeting People is no different:

 "Were it about anyone other than Radiohead, Meeting People would come across as the indulgent whinings of coddled rock stars. But director Grant Gee (who also shot "No Surprises") winds up beautifully detailing the emptiness at the eye of the hurricane of hype." Craig McLean, Spin

 "It's not exactly news that rock stardom is a tedious gig, but it's never looked this bad before, and you can't take your eyes off it. Gee uses all of his technically stunning effects to turn the tour into a jittery, nearly colorless blur of images, a ninety-four minute psychedelic collage of road fatigue." Rob Sheffield, Rolling Stone

 "This is in a different league to most rock longform video. Chilling and gorgeous to look at and listen to, this sets the standard." Stuart Maconie, Q

 "(Meeting People) stands as a compelling, distinctive document" Dennis Harvey, Daily Variety

 "...(an) innovative road film...shot in an engrossing style by Grant Gee, the film captures the tedium of touring." Alternative Press

 "Gee's arresting shots of New York...Barcelona, London, Paris, Berlin and Tokyo are interspersed with live show and studio footage as well as numerous scenes of the band exhibiting pre-show and post-show emotions." Roxanne Ruben, Allstar
