Staff at Cinema City in Norwich are hoping to speak to people who attended a gig by The Stone Roses in Norwich in 1989.
Shortly before the indie band made their breakthrough to worldwide stardom, they played a gig at Norwich Arts Centre, in St Benedicts Street.
Ahead of this week's release of British director Shane Meadows' film about the legendary British Band, The Stone Roses: Made of Stone, Cinema City is hoping to find people who remember that gig.
Only a handful of people are thought to have witnessed the gig on Sunday, June 27, 1989 and staff from the St Andrews Street cinema want to hear from anyone who might have unwittingly witnessed musical history in Norwich, at just £3.50 per ticket.
Cinema City's marketing manager, Samuel Leonard, said: 'We're all big fans of The Stone Roses and we think it's amazing that the band played here in Norwich, just months before being catapulted to super-stardom.
'We're collecting memorabilia for the release of Made of Stone and we'd love to hear from anyone who might have tickets, photographs or any Stone Roses memorabilia.'
The film features unprecedented access to previously unseen archive footage of the Manchester band, directed by This Is England director Shane Meadows, and opens at Cinema City on Wednesday.

Norwich Arts Centre's marketing manager, Jenny Allison, added: 'Loads of bands have played at the Arts Centre at the very start of their careers; just as The Stone Roses did in 1989.
'We have always provided excellent opportunities to see the next big thing in a really intimate setting. It's fantastic that local cinema-goers will get a chance to watch the documentary in a city that helped shape the band's career.'
