Cleopatra Entertainment's feature film "Street Survivors: The True Story Of The Lynyrd Skynyrd Plane Crash" has been officially selected for inclusion in the upcoming Hollywood Reel Independent Film Festival taking place at the Staples Center/LA Live in Los Angeles from February 12 through February 27. The film will premier there on Sunday, February 16 at 7:30 p.m. and will also have a nationwide theatrical release starting this spring.

"Street Survivors: The True Story Of The Lynyrd Skynyrd Plane Crash" was scripted and directed by Jared Cohn ("Devil's Revenge", "Devil's Domain"), produced by Brian Perera and co-produced by Tim Yasui for Cleopatra Entertainment. The biopic recreates the story about the ill-fated flight through the eyes of former LYNYRD SKYNYRD drummer Artimus Pyle (who narrates the film), who not only survived the plane crash that claimed the life of the band's founder and frontman Ronnie Van Zant amongst others, but who also physically pulled the remaining survivors out of the plane wreckage before staggering towards the nearest farmhouse in rural Louisiana to seek help. Pyle also contributes original music to the film's soundtrack.

Says Pyle: "This film's story — MY story — is not just about the plane crash but also about my personal relationship with the genius that was Ronnie Van Zant — whom I loved like a brother and still miss to this day."

Cleopatra Entertainment's plans for the roll-out include an international festival run followed by a domestic theatrical run, including personal appearances by Artimus Pyle, who will introduce the film an participate in question-and-answer sessions with the audience. In select markets Pyle will perform a live music concert with the ARTIMUS PYLE BAND that will feature the hit songs by LYNYRD SKYNYRD. A worldwide VOD and Home Entertainment release which will include a stand-alone official soundtrack album are scheduled for June 30.

I don't know about ticket sales after 1990, but in 1974 Lynyrd Skynyrd took the title of number one so called southern band from the Allman Brothers album sales and ticket sales. Neither band sold a ton of albums with their new studio releases after 1989.

I love Skynyrd, I don’t know if I have much interest in this. That documentary that Showtime aired was pretty good.

I recently bought the Street Survivors 2 disc remasters with extra disc of outtakes and live tunes. Sweet piece by one of my fav bands, I love the alternating vocals with Ronnie and Steve and the varied background vocals from the Honkettes. Such a horrible loss for the Gaines Family losing both Steve and Cassie.

What can be said that already hasn't?

Cant remember the exact date but the crash took place about a week or so before a date in the D at Cobo. Still have my tickets and will miss that forever. Still vivid memories when I heard the news all those years ago. Lord have mercy...….peace

I heard a podcast a few months back with Artemis Pyle where he went through the whole thing. I knew of the crash , but not to the detail he explained.

Charlie Daniel's heard about it before they were going onstage for a show in St. Louis. They prayed, did their show and later wrote a song about it "Ronnie my buddy above all the rest, I miss you the most and loved you the best, now that you're gone I thank God I was blessed just to know you, but it's all right now, keep on singing loud, it's all right now, heaven should be proud. "
