The two Rolling Stones concerts filmed for "Shine a Light" took place at the Beacon Theatre in Manhattan. It is their second film to be shown in the IMAX format. Because of a lack of appropriate IMAX cinemas in Manhattan upon the release of the IMAX film "At The Max" in 1991, the film had to be shown at a non-conventional venue: the Beacon Theatre.
