Join us on Wednesday 10 February at the Spotted Mallard, 314 Sydney Road Brunswick for a screening of Jazz On A Summer's Day. FREE entry for all and special treatment for PBS members.

Summer's not quite over yet, and to celebrate this fact and the fourth anniversary of her show, Chelsea Wilson from Jazz Got Soul is excited to present this classic doco. Chelsea starts the evening with a DJ set from 7 – 8pm (the perfect time to come in for some tasty dinner and a few cool drinks), then she'll give a short introduction to the film at 8:15pm before the screening starts at 8:30pm. Just to sweeten the deal, PBS members receive a free pot of Thunder Road beer or glass of Cake wine on entry! Members also receive a 10% discount on food and drinks all night, so don't forget your membership card.

Bookings are essential, and entry is free to all – we hope to see you there.

A little background about the film:
'In 1958, celebrated photographer Bert Stern was inspired by a friend to "take some pictures" of the Newport Jazz Festival. Following a turn of events, Stern decided to produce a full fledged motion picture. It would become his only film. By breaking many cinematic taboos, Stern recreated the look of his still photography into motion with a dazzling display of rich human observation and some of the most remarkable scenes of live jazz ever brought to the screen.

When it premiered at the Venice film Festival rumours of an American "New Wave" swirled. Although the principle emphasis of 'Jazz On A Summer's Day' is on the performance of such legendary artists as Louis Armstrong, Anita O'Day, Mahalia Jackson, and Thelonious Monk, Stern's camera also fills us with illuminating images of America at its best. Whether it's a birds eye view of the rich in their yachts or young from Brooklyn on a tour of Newport's picturesque streets and beaches, this is more than just a jazz film, it's the film of an era.'

Mallard Movies will continue throughout 2016, with screenings on the last Wednesday of each month. Keep an eye out for more announcements.
