Simon and Garfunkel Flick Debuts

When: Tue., March 8 2011

File this under "Time Flies": It's been 40 years since folk-rockers Simon & Garfunkel released their Bridge Over Troubled Waters album, an artistic triumph that also marked the end of their career as a duo. Tonight at the Cedar Lee Theatre, you can get a behind-the-scenes peek at the creation of the record and the dissolution of the relationship at the U.S. premiere of The Harmony Game: The Making of Bridge Over Troubled Water. Featuring never-before-seen interviews with Simon, Garfunkel, Charles Grodin, and others, the feature-length documentary also includes scenes from Songs of America, the controversial (for news footage of social unrest) CBS television special that hasn't been seen since its initial airing on November 30, 1969. The flick screens tonight at 7 p.m., with giveaways of the soon-to-be released CD/DVD box set. Tickets are $10, or $8 for WKSU members. Snag 'em online at clevelandcinemas.com or at the box office, 2163 Lee Rd. in Cleveland Heights. — Cicora
