In addition, following its theatrical release, the film will come exclusively to Amazon Prime Video beginning June 2 at no additional cost to Prime customers.
Long Strange Trip marks the first time Amazon Original Movies and Amazon Original Series have partnered on an original project to be released in both theaters and on Prime. Amazon Studios acquired the project ahead of its premiere at Sundance Film Festival.
