Seymour: An Introduction and The Wrecking Crew

Two music films in the Starlight Room this week. More often than not, programming synchronicity is more serendipitous than good intentions at work. Sometimes things just work out well. Such is the case beginning this Friday (4/3) in the Starlight Room, where we're featuring two outstanding documentaries about music. I can guarantee that you'll walk out humming a tune. I missed Seymour at last year's Telluride Film Festival, but it was one of many film's that was the talk of the town. Peter Travers of Rolling Stone said it best. "Time spent in [Seymour] Bernstein's funny, touching and vital presence is something you don't want to miss."

The Wrecking Crew might have you itching to get up and dance. "It's a sing-along, joyful doc." (Indiewire).  It's a celebration of the group of musicians who provided back-up instrumentals to such legendary recording artists as Frank Sinatra, The Beach Boys and Bing Crosby.  The movie features such luminaries as Brian Wilson, Sonny and Cher, Glen Campbell, Sammy Davis, Jr, Al Jardine, Davy Jones, Mike Love, The Monkees, Dennis Wilson and Frank Zappa.  "A treasure-trove of witness-at-creation anecdotes and enduringly potent '60s pop classics." -Variety

And we're holding over the stunning Gett: Trial of Vivian Amsalem through Sunday.  It's a great drama from Israel featuring outstanding performances.

See you at Rose, and the Starlight Room.
