Frank Zappa

Sony Pictures Classics and Amoeba Music invite you to an advance screening of Eat That Question: Frank Zappa in His Own Words, followed by a Q&A with director Thorsten Schütte and his daughter Moon Zappa, Wednesday, June 15th at Arclight Cinemas in Hollywood.

To attend this free screening and Q&A, RSVP via email to Please note, seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. RSVP is for you and one guest and is nontransferable.

Eat That Question: Frank Zappa in His Own Words is a new documentary about with the iconoclastic composer and musician who died far too early, at age 52 of cancer. Director Thorsten Schütte has painstakingly gathered rare archival footage of Zappa interviews and performances from obscure TV stations around the world. This intimate portrait follows Zappa from clean-shaven, besuited youth, to fearless chief freak, to his relentlessly productive final days before his death. The documentary opens in theaters June 24th.

"The film captures so much of the full throttle genius of our dad. He was a misfit who was ahead of his time and who stayed the creative course against all odds. I'm so grateful that this movie may reach even one person who commits (or recommits) to their inherent gifts regardless of the opposing messages the world can spew." -- Moon Zappa
