Local theaters to broadcast 12-12-12 benefit concert live

We're over the 12-12-12 posts already. But there's one aspect of it we're morbidly curious about, and that involves the heavily rumored, not-denied teaming of Paul McCartney and at least one surviving member of Nirvana at tonight's 12-12-12 concert in New York City to benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy. That sounds silly. And totally un-missable. 

You can watch this potentially historic concert -- which will also feature The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, The WhoRoger Waters (who will do "Comfortably Numb" with Eddie Vedder), Kanye West and other performers, as well as the usual talking-head celebrities -- on television or stream it online. (Check here for stations and websites.)

But another, perhaps more appealing option presents itself: seeing it on the big screen. A handful of local CineMark Theaters will broadcast the proceedings right as the concert starts, at 4:30 p.m. PST.

Those locations include Sam's Town, Orleans, South Point and Santa Fe

You can buy tickets and get more information here. It'll cost you $7, but all proceeds go to the charity, and on the off-chance that Macca belts out "Rape Me" or "Milk It," you're going to want the full sensory blast of digital projection and sound to augment such epicness -- or farce.
