THE KING is presented as part of a collaborative, music-centered film series with the Crested Butte Music Festival. 

The Sound Image series explores the relationship between two powerful art forms by presenting films about music and films in which music is a critical element.

THE KING
THURSDAY, JULY 5 | 7 PM

A must-see glimpse into modern America.

Forty years after the death of Elvis Presley, award-winning director Eugene Jarecki takes Elvis' 1963 Rolls-Royce on a musical road trip across the country that Presley left behind. From the deep south to New York, Las Vegas, and beyond, a tapestry of musical luminaries and unknown Americans join the journey, expressing themselves in words and song.

"With his singular cinematic brilliance, Jarecki weaves an urgent portrait of a nation in crisis with a metaphoric connection between Elvis and America. For just as a country boy lost his authenticity and became a king, so too his country lost her democracy and became an empire. One died on the toilet; the other now faces an uncertain future under the closest thing she’s ever come to a monarch." - David Courier 

Featuring musical performances by John Hiatt, Emmylou Harris, and many others.

Takes place at the Center for the Arts, 606 6th Street. (303) 204-9080

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Film starts at 7:00 p.m.

AUGUST FILM SERIES


ITZHAK is presented as part of a collaborative, music-centered film series with the Crested Butte Music Festival. 

The Sound Image series explores the relationship between two powerful art forms by presenting films about music and films in which music is a critical element.

ITZHAK
WEDNESDAY, AUG 1 | 7 PM

From Schubert to Strauss, Bach to Brahms, Mozart to Billy Joel, Itzhak Perlman’s violin playing transcends mere performance to evoke the celebrations and struggles of real life; praying with the violin, says renowned Tel Aviv violinmaker Amnon Weinstein. Alison Chernick’s enchanting documentary looks beyond the sublime musician to see the polio survivor whose parents emigrated from Poland to Israel, and the young man who struggled to be taken seriously as a music student when schools saw only his disability. Itzhak himself is funny, irreverent and self-deprecating, and here his life story unspools in conversations with masterful musicians, family and friends, and most endearingly his devoted wife of 50 years, Toby. Itzhak and Toby’s lives are dedicated to their large, loving, Jewish family in NYC and their continual support of young musicians. As charming and entrancing as the famous violinist himself, ITZHAK is a portrait of musical virtuosity seamlessly enclosed in warmth, humor, and above all, love.
