The Asbury Park Press reports Springsteen introduced two showings of "Western Stars" at the AMC Loews Freehold Metroplex Cinema in Freehold on Saturday.
Springsteen is a native of Freehold borough.
Springsteen told audiences that since his band knew it wasn't going to tour, he had to try to figure out a way to bring the music to his audience.
"Western Stars" is a concert film shot in a barn in front of a small audience at Springsteen's property in Colts Neck.
The music album "Western Stars" was released in June.
A second preview screening is scheduled for Wednesday. The film hits theaters on Friday.
