One Note at a Time

(part of Marsden Jazz Festival)

‘If the musicians ain’t got a chance to live, then what chance has the music got?’ Dr John.

This is a beautifully crafted, feature documentary, rich with colourful characters, and set in the iconic musical backdrop of New Orleans.

In 2005 the music stopped, when one of the most deadly and destructive hurricanes in American history struck.

This musical labour of love celebrates the sounds of New Orleans with enthusiasm and affection

MOJO ★★★★
“packs a heavy emotional punch“

Time Out ★★★
“it’s a deeply affectionate chronicle of a city in recovery – a city that’s so much more than bricks and mortar. On we go.”

Three Billboards outside Ebbing Missouri Film poster for Electric Theatre Cinema Marsden

Frances McDormand excels as a mother taunting the police to uncover the truth about her daughter’s death
Mark Kermode, Observer film critic

“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is not going to win any awards for punchiest film title of the year but it’s a startling piece of work: a perverse, comic and tragic revenge story in which all the characters defy our often very low expectations of them.”
Geofrey Macnab, The Independent

£5/£4 (NUS/Concs.) – included in membership
(early bird available until 08 October – £22/6 films)

Doors 18:00pm/Film starts 18:30pm

Director: Richard C. Sarafian
Stars: Barry Newman, Cleavon Little, Charlotte Rampling

vanishing point film still

Our season opener is a full-on cult classic and a rare opportunity to watch it on the big screen.

Vanishing Point is a weirdly cool, existential car chase movie from 1971. It’s a high concept movie as a dude named Kowalski (Barry Newman) has to drive from Colorado to San Fran in under fifteen hours to meet a bet, cops be damned. All to a cool retro soundtrack of American soul, blues and rock.

It’s a film about the need for speed and going out in a blaze of glory. The dusty American desert horizon has never looked so dangerous and enticing….

Get Out

6 May at 19:00–22:00

US / 2017 / Dir Jordan Peele
102 mins. / BBFC Cert. 15
Cast includes: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford, Caleb Landry Jones, Stephen Root, Lakeith Stanfield, Catherine Keener, Erika Alexander

Get Out Film poster

A brilliantly inventive film that gets under the skin of contemporary race politics and blends aspects of comedy and horror into a richly textured film of thrilling twists, scares and creepy undertones.

“Get Out is an extremely confident debut feature for Peele, one steeped in the language of horror cinema rather than merely copying it.” – The Atlantic

“What begins as an awkward tale of meeting the parents becomes something much, much worse, but it’s all part of a fully realized whole.”- The Guardian

“Blending race-savvy satire with horror to especially potent effect, this bombshell social critique from first-time director Jordan Peele proves positively fearless.” – Variety

Detroit Film Poster

Fact-based drama set during the 1967 Detroit riots in which a group of rogue police officers respond to a complaint with retribution rather than justice on their minds. John Boyega plays a security guard drawn in to a grotesque showdown with racist cops at the Algiers Motel. A gruelling but entirely essential examination of a brutal chapter in US race struggle.

“A gruelling, nightmarish, ferociously vivid riot epic that recreates one of the darkest chapters in American history. Unflinching, unmissable and terrifyingly pertinent.” – Empire

“Dramatically relentless and emotionally shattering, it brings news from a turbulent past that casts a baleful light on America’s troubled present.” – Wall Street Journal

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

Electric Theatre Cinema Notes on Blindness

Join us for this special screening of Notes on Blindness

(2016 Dir. Pete Middleton, James Spinney, Cert. U)

“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].”

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

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
