Free screening Wednesday of Glen Campbell film at Egyptian; Q & A with Campbell’s wife afterward

Country music legend Glen Campbell set out in 2011 on his “Goodbye Tour,” an early retirement brought on by cognitive problems related to Alzehimer’s disease, which afflicts more than 5 million Americans.

A film that documented Campbell’s 151-show tour was released last fall. The film “Glen Campbell: I’ll Be Me” will be screened at the Egyptian Theatre in Boise at 6 p.m. Wednesday.

A question-and-answer session with Glen Campbell’s wife, Kim, will follow the screening, at about 7:45 p.m.

The screening was organized by The Terraces of Boise, a retirement community set to open this summer. They’ve already given out about 400 tickets, but there are 300 available to the general public. Those who want to attend must RSVP: Call 336-5550.

In 2015, Campbell won a Grammy for Best Country Song for “I’m Not Gonna Miss You.” See a video of Campbell performing that song here:

The Egyptian Theatre is at 700 W. Main St. in Downtown Boise.
