29 images have been released from the upcoming film, CBGBAlan Rickman leads the picture as struggling club owner Hilly Kristal, who had a vision of bringing country, bluegrass and blues music to the lower Eastside venue which ultimately became a proving ground for rock-and-roll and punk bands.  It is the story of a venue as renowned for its performers as it is for the filthiness of its restroom.  I’ll be curious to hear what people who actually went to CBGB when it was open think of the film (the club closed in 2006).

Hit the jump to check out the images.  The film also stars Rupert Grint, Malin Akerman, Ashley Greene, Johnny Galecki, Donal Logue, Mickey Sumner, and Justin BarthaCBGB opens October 11th.

Here’s the official synopsis for CBGB:

CBGB follows the story of Hilly Kristal’s New York club from its origins as Country, Bluegrass and Blues (CBGB) to what it ultimately became: the birthplace of underground rock ‘n roll and punk. Kristal, a fan of Country and Bluegrass dreamed of having a club in the lower Eastside that catered to that kind of music, when he had difficulty booking those bands he turned to other kinds of rock music. Hilly had one demand of the acts he booked, they could only play their own original music. No top 40′s, no covers. It was the credo he lived by, support the artist at whatever the cost.
