The Fabulous 40s 

When: Fri., May 23 2014
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 the Tri-C JazzFest. This week’s 1954 biopic, The Glenn Miller Story, stars James Stewart as the ’40s era jazz trombonist/bandleader. A few famous jazz performers grace the silver screen in the film, including Louis Armstrong and Gene Krupa. The screening features a 35mm archive print and starts at 5:15 tonight and at 5 tomorrow night. Tickets are $9. (Gonzalez)
