The Connection film poster

The Connection takes us directly into the seedy world of heroin and jazz. A director films jazz musicians as they wait for their dealer, the cowboy, to arrive. When the cowboy arrives, the director is faced with a dilemma – does he take heroin to prove that he is not a narc or cut the film short? The result is an unique and brilliant cinematographic insight into the underground world of jazz and junkies in the 1960’s.

Tangerines
Venue: Marsden Musical Institute, Marsden Lane, Marsden, Kirklees.

Electric Theatre Cinema - Tangerines

Described as “engaging, intelligent anti-war storytelling” (The Guardian), Tangerines was Oscar-nominated for best foreign film in 2015. Set in 1992 during the Post-Soviet Chechen conflict, the film has a powerful and moving anti-war message. Caught in the middle of the bloody conflict, the war arrives literally at the doorstep of Estonian tangerine farmer Ivo as he takes one wounded fighter from each side into his home: Georgian Niko and Chechen mercenary Ahmed. As the fighters confront and question their ethnic divides, the film delivers a powerful message of peace and reconciliation.

“Tangerines is a modest film, sure of its proportions and clear about its intentions.” New York Times

Notes on Blindness
Venue: Marsden Mechanics Hall, Peel Street, Marsden.

Electric Theatre Cinema Notes on Blindness

Join us for this special screening of Notes on Blindness

“In the summer of 1983, just days before the birth of his first son, writer and theologian John Hull went blind. In order to make sense of the upheaval in his life, he began keeping a diary on audiocassette. Upon their publication in 1990, Oliver Sacks described the work as ‘the most extraordinary, precise, deep and beautiful account of blindness I have ever read. It is to my mind a masterpiece.’ With exclusive access to these original recordings, NOTES ON BLINDNESS encompasses dreams, memory and imaginative life, excavating the interior world of blindness [IMDB].”


Sun 4 DEC –  19:30
The Grump
Venue: Marsden Musical Institute, Marsden Lane, Marsden, Kirklees.

Electric Theatre Cinema - The Grump poster

Stubborn and set in his ways, ‘The Grump’ is a force of nature who resents the modern world and believes things were better in the old days.

After a bad fall requires physiotherapy and a trip to Helsinki, the Grump is confronted by the big modern world whilst spending time with son Hessu and his career-minded daughter-in- law Liisa in the city. This Finnish dark comedy centres on an infuriating and hilarious portrait of this curmudgeonly unlikable character, but develops into a touching story about tolerance and closing the generation gap.

“This comic romp boasts the sort of humour that can be appreciated by anyone who thinks the world is going to hell in a handbasket.” Toronto Film Review/Variety

Sun 2 OCT –  19:30
Miles Ahead: A Jazz Festival Special

See our review here.

The story of a fictional Rolling Stone journalist meeting with Jazz great Miles Davis in 1979 was a true labour of love for Don Cheadle who co-wrote and stars in his directorial debut. It’s an unconventional music biog that follows the unlikely pairing as they attempt to recover session tapes from music producers via crime caper shoot outs and car chases. It’s a wild ride through the’ 70’s drug addled wilderness years with flashbacks to his ground-breaking bebop heyday as Davis attempts to get his career back on track.

“Like Davis’s music, the film’s structure is modal, with Cheadle getting the legend’s changing stance spot on” The Guardian
