All That Jazz

When: Sat., May 10 2014

Jazz and cinema are two art forms that developed in tandem, and the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque celebrates this relationship in what’s been dubbed the Double-C JazzFilmFest. This first-ever jazz film series at Cinematheque is dedicated to the memory of WCPN’s Jazz Tracks host Bobby Jackson. The series runs until June 21 and serves as a fitting prelude to the Tri-C JazzFest. Tonight at 6:50, a restored 35mm print of the 1955 film The Man with the Golden Arm will show. Directed by Otto Preminger and starring Frank Sinatra and Kim Novak, this film was rejected by the MPAA for depicting drug addiction. Then, at 9:10 tonight and 3:15 p.m. on Sunday, New York, New York, the 1977 Scorcese film about big-band jazz starring Robert De Niro and Liza Minnelli, screens. Tickets are $9. (Gonzalez)
