To Love Somebody, You Should be Dancing, How Deep is Your Love, Stayin’ Alive – with 20 number one hits and over 1000 songs to their name, the Bee Gees weren’t just a band: they were musical icons who created the original Miami Sound.
The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend a Broken Heart follows the rise to fame of brothers Barry, Maurice, and Robin Gibb, from their early years in Australia to the sheer disco mania that enveloped them after the release of Saturday Night Fever.
But the Bee Gees were more than just high falsettos: they were extraordinarily talented songwriters that penned some of the greatest songs of their generation.
Directed by five-time Oscar nominee Frank Marshall and featuring incredible archival access, this is the type of documentary that makes it hard for you to sit still. Song after song, hit after hit, The Bee Gees will transport you to a night of music and nostalgia -- and will remind you of just how good it feels to get up and dance.

FUN FACT: One block west of Dezerland Park Drive-In is a street called BROTHERS GIBB BLVD. It’s so named in honor of our Opening Night subjects and the fact that they recorded most of their hits at Criteria Records, which is located on that street and prominently featured in the film.
