Let us serenade you this summer with films that will move you -- literally! We've got a great lineup of musical movies, some iconic, some eclectic, but all FAB Flicks that you'll love. Once again, BAM Film has curated our free series for the big screen in our own Brooklyn "Backlot" outdoors at Brooklyn Plaza Medical Center (650 Fulton) and we plan for lots of FAB fun! Our second feature is an award-winning flick, Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary (2016, 99 min.), on Thursday, July 18, 2019 at 8:30p. Doors open at 7:30p.

The film explores the global power and impact of the music of John Coltrane and reveals the passions, experiences, and forces that shaped his life and revolutionary sounds. Includes commentary from Denzel Washington, Carlos Santana, Common, Cornell West, Bill Clinton, and others.

Arrive early for music, fun giveaways, and special treats! The raffle prize for the night includes two BAM movie tickets, a $25 gift card for Peaches Hot House Fort Greene, and a selection of classic jazz CDs. (Plus, everyone can grab a FAB card and get 10% off all meals at Hot House Fort Greene, through August 15!) And feel free to bring over takeout or snacks from one of the many FAB businesses in the area. Free Admission.
