Jazz Greats

Jazz and cinema are two art forms that developed in tandem, and the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque celebrates this relationship in what’s been dubbed the Double-C JazzFilmFest. This first-ever jazz film series is dedicated to the memory of WCPN’s Jazz Tracks host Bobby Jackson. The series runs until June 21 and serves as a fitting prelude to Tri-C JazzFest. Tonight’s iteration includes the new documentary A Great Day in Cleveland: Behind the Scenes, depicting 143 local jazz musicians and supporters creating in image inspired by Art Kane’s iconic 1958 photograph A Great Day in Harlem. This short is followed by the Oscar-nominated documentary A Great Day in Harlem, giving insight to the aforementioned famous photo. The screening begins tonight at 5:15 and the film also shows at 4:30 p.m. tomorrow. Bird, Clint Eastwood’s portrait of Charlie Parker starring Forest Whitaker, also screens tonight at 6:45. Tickets are $9. (Eric Gonzalez)

Swim at a Public Pool



 For those of us not lucky enough to have a friend with a pool, the region’s public swimming offerings are the next best thing. There are, of course, Cleveland’s public pools, but with erratic openings based on temperatures and staffing, they are hardly worth counting on. Luckily, you can snag a guest day pass in many suburbs where the water is warm and the beach chairs bountiful: Dragga Pool in Mayfield Heights will run you $10 as a non-resident, Walter’s Grove in Parma will cost you just $6, Parma Heights’ primo pool awaits for $8, Foster and Becks Pools in Lakewood will let you in for $5.50, and Beachwood’s absolutely stunning outdoor aquatic center will refresh and entertain you for $10.
