Rocky’s Review
Spring Has Sprung!

Over the course of 24 years the Rose has acquired quite a collection of movie soundtracks. And while we always try to select walk-in music that either directly or indirectly ties in with our current features on screen, my perennial fall-back has always been "Kind of Blue," Miles Davis's groundbreaking LP from 1959. And so, it is with great pleasure that I to present to you this Friday in the Starlight Room, MILES AHEAD, Don Cheadle's mesmerizing portrayal of the great trumpeter. NPR called the movie "A pulsating act of resurrection. Call it a life story, only funkified."

When I was in film school, Akira Kurosawa was always mentioned in the same breath as Orson Welles, Jean Renoir, Billy Wilder, Satyajit Ray, Alfred Hitchcock, and all the giants of film who infiltrated my impressionable college psyche. So I never think twice about presenting a classic that has been restored to perfection. RAN is that classic, and a masterpiece. It screens this Friday through Monday only."Spectacular! Among the most thrilling movie experiences a viewer can have." -The New York Times

MIDNIGHT SPECIAL wowed audiences this past weekend in the Starlight Room, and is moving to the Rosebud this Friday for one more week.  THE JUNGLE BOOK, a certified hit throughout the universe, and at the Rose as well, holds over in the Rose auditorium, in both 2D and 3D.

And in what I hope will become a new series, the Berlin Philharmonic presents Beethoven's Symphonies No. 4 and 7 in the Rose this Saturday at noon.

Only a handful of tickets remain for both FARGO (2 tickets) and the JESSIKA KENNEY / RED PINE music and poetry event (13 tickets) this Sunday.  Don't delay.
