Woodstock Causes Riot in Greece

ATHENS, Greece — The festival film, Woodstock, precipitated a riot here when it was shown for the first time November 28th. Thousands of youths crowded the street in front of the Palace Theatre, just off Constitution Square (center of the city) ... it was unclear, however, whether, they were trying to jam into the 2,000 capacity filmhouse or whether the incident was a demonstration.
