Dave Grohl’s self-proclaimed “most important work” will hit the silver screen after an appearance later this month at Sundance. The Sound City documentary, his directorial debut (under Roswell Films) about the legendary recording studio in Los Angeles, is to premiere as a limited theatrical engagement starting January 31. A digital download version will be available a day later.

Luckily for Lower East Siders, the Landmark Sunshine Cinema has dibs on Sound City that night; nowhere else in the city. One and done. Get your tickets here before they’re sold out.

Here’s a list of some classics recorded at Sound City:

Nirvana – Nevermind
Fleetwood Mac – Rumours
Neil Young – After the Gold Rush
Fleetwood Mac – Fleetwood Mac
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers – Damn the Torpedoes
Rage Against the Machine – Rage Against the Machine
Dr. John – Dr. John’s Gumbo
