The Birdman Of Alkijazz – Special Guest Andy Sheppard

Sunrise (U)

Sun 25 Mar 8.00pm

£8.00/£6.00 Concs -Ticket holders entitled to a free Southern Comfort mixer from the bar.

This season’s improvisational jazz battle sees the Birdman of Alkijazz (musician Tony Orrell) challenge one of Britain’s foremost Jazz saxophonists and composers Andy Sheppard. The duo provide a live accompaniment to Sunrise – an explosive meeting of German romanticism and glossy mass-production modernism. It is pure melodrama; a young farmer and his new wife’s happiness is threatened by the arrival of a vamp from the big city. The film made Time Out’s Top 100 list and won three of the first Academy Awards.
