UPDATE - 10/3@10:12AM: Here's a more detailed synopsis from Rotten Tomatoes (thanks John at Cygnus-X1.net):

Fathom Events, ole, Anthem and Zoe are excited to bring Rush | Time Stand Still to movie theatres nationwide for a raw, intimate and vivid look into Rush's R40 tour for a one-night event on Thursday, November 3! In 2015, Rush went out for a 40th anniversary tour; rumored to be the last tour of its kind and the end of their life on the road. Narrated by Paul Rudd, Rush | Time Stand Still is a documentary event which covers the R40 tour and the unique relationship Rush have with their devoted fans. Candid interviews with Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart bring Time Stand Still to an emotional conclusion for a band who built their career the old-fashioned way. One show at a time.

According to this Fandango listing it looks like the long-anticipated Rush R40 Live tour documentary will be released later this fall, and will be getting a special, one-night screening in theaters across North America on November 3rd. The film is titled Rush: Time Stand Still and the synopsis reads as follows:

Fathom Events, ole, Anthem and Zoe are excited to bring Rush | Time Stand Still to movie theatres nationwide for a raw, intimate and vivid look into Rush's R40 tour for a one-night event on Thursday, November 3!

No doubt this is also the mysterious, Thursday night Moving Pictures event that the RushCon folks alluded to in their schedule of events posting last week. The documentary crew was on hand throughout Rush's 2015 R40 Live tour and at both RushCon conventions, interviewing fans and capturing behind-the-scenes video. More information as we learn it. Thanks to Howard H for the heads up.
