CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- June 6, 2013

On a blistering summer day in 1972, the Grateful Dead took the stage on the
grounds of the Oregon Country Fair in Veneta, Ore. for what would become one
of the most legendary concerts of the band’s storied history. This summer,
fans across the U.S. will finally get to see this, the most highly sought
after Grateful Dead show captured on film, when NCM Fathom Events presents the
previously unreleased concert “Sunshine Daydream” as part of “Grateful Dead
Meet Up at the Movies 2013*.”  Broadcast to select movie theaters nationwide
on Thursday, Aug. 1 at 7:00 p.m. local time, “Sunshine  Daydream” spotlights
the band’s epic performance against a pastoral background in the Oregon
countryside. Shot originally on 16mm film and painstakingly restored to HD
resolution, this special event encapsulates the quintessential Dead Head
experience.

Tickets for “Grateful Dead Meet Up at the Movies 2013” are available at
participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com. The
event will be presented in nearly 450 select movie theaters around the country
through NCM’s exclusive Digital Broadcast Network. For a complete list of
theater locations and prices, visit the NCM Fathom Events website (theaters
and participants are subject to change).

Special features include never-before-seen footage of the concert day as well
as recently recorded interviews with key participants such as Ken Babbs, Sam
Cutler, Wavy Gravy and Carolyn "Mountain Girl" Garcia. The host of
adventuresome characters provides insight on the sense of community that made
possible a special day when the culture came together to help raise money to
keep the local town’s Springfield Creamery afloat.

With appearances by key members of the Grateful Dead community, including
masters of ceremony Ken Kesey and Babbs, and a cavalcade of cohorts and Merry
Pranksters, “Sunshine Daydream” stands as the definitive document of the
phenomena that changed the lives of millions forever, and proved to the world
that there’s truly nothing like a Grateful Dead concert.

The playlist contains all new Stereo and 5.1 Audio mixes done by Jeffrey
Norman at TRI Studios in San Rafael, Calif. and mastered by Grammy^® winning
engineer David Glasser at Air Show Mastering in Boulder, Colo., and will
include the tracks: “Bird Song,” “China Cat Sunflower,” “Dark Star,” “Greatest
Story Ever Told,” “Jack Straw,” “Playing In The Band,” “Promised Land,” “El
Paso,” “Sing Me Back Home,” and “I Know You Rider.”

“Fathom heard the requests of Dead Heads everywhere, and with this third
annual ‘Grateful Dead Meet Up at the Movies,’  we’re giving them the most
sought-after experience of their favorite band,” said Dan Diamond, senior vice
president of NCM Fathom Events. “For one night in movie theaters nationwide,
the magic of ‘Sunshine Daydream’ will become a reality once again.”
