If you missed “Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary” at the Kiggins Theatre, don’t fret—it’s playing at the Liberty Theatre in downtown Camas at 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 20, and again at 7 p.m. on Sunday, May 21. This film celebrates the groundbreaking music of jazz legend John Coltrane.
Chasing Trane is the definitive documentary film about an outside-the-box thinker with extraordinary talent whose boundary-shattering music continues to impact and influence people around the world. This smart, passionate, thought-provoking and uplifting documentary is for anyone who appreciates the power of music to entertain, inspire and transform. Written and directed by critically-acclaimed documentary filmmaker John Scheinfeld (The U.S. vs. John Lennon and Who Is Harry Nilsson…?), the film is produced with the full participation of the Coltrane family and the support of the record labels that collectively own the Coltrane catalog. Scheinfeld brings his strong story-telling skills to the creation of a rich, textured and compelling narrative that takes the audience to unexpected places.
The film will play in the Liberty’s Granada Studio. Tickets are $8 for all seats. Theater-style refreshments are available in the lobby, as are craft beers and fine wines. For more information about upcoming films at this restored landmark historical theater, visit www.camasliberty.com.
