Village Theater

Info:

Following performances at Tamalpais Mountain Theater and the Fillmore Auditorium on the previous day, The Doors travel to New York for two more shows at the Village Theatre, later known as the Fillmore East. This 16mm color footage is shot on and around the stage during at least one of the two shows given that night at the venue. While the footage is of excellent quality, it does not feature sound.
