The Record Man
Directed by Mark Moormann, 2015, 109mins.
Featuring Henry Stone and these artists and songs: James Brown: Please, Please, Please, Ray Charles: St. Pete Blues, Sam & Dave: Hold On I’m Comin’, George McCrae: Rock Your Baby, wen McCrae: Rockin’ Chair, KC & The Sunshine Band: Get Down Tonight, Benny Latimore: Let’s Straighten It Out, Ray Munnings: Funky Nassau, Timmy Thomas: Why Can’t We Live Together, Jimmie Bo Horne: Dance Across the Floor, Bobby Caldwell: What You Won’t Do For Love, Anita Ward: Ring My Bel…and many more.

The Record Man is a uniquely American story of how a group of musical underdogs with raw talent and diverse backgrounds, led by the indefatigable determination of one man, Henry Stone, exported the music of Miami to the world.
Before there was a “music business” there was Henry Stone, “The Record Man”. From distributing records out of his ’48 Packard to establishing TK Records as the largest independent label of the 1970s, Henry had an ear for hits. His funky eight-track studio and chart topping family of artists including KC and the Sunshine Band, led to the original Miami Sound and birth of Disco. When his empire collapsed on a baseball field in Chicago in 1979, Henry didn’t miss a beat launching Miami Freestyle.

This is a story about clothing. It’s about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing?

Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums, and featuring interviews with the world’s leading influencers including Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva, The True Cost is an unprecedented project that invites us on an eye opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes.

As Baltimore jumps knee deep into the struggle, the Black Lives Matter movement has evolved into the Black Spring. And in the media we are witnessing a polarizing debate about the acceptance, inevitability and effectiveness of the eruptions in the street. Unfortunately, the question is usually posed in very simplistic terms: For, or Against violence.

We need a deeper analysis, so this is the perfect time to watch Concerning Violence – an unforgettable film that combines unseen footage of the African liberation movements of the 20th century with Frantz Fanon’s deep analysis on the relationship between violence and resistance.

Doors open at 7:00, film goes on at 7:30
Screening is free, drinks are cheap, and free popcorn will be flowing!

Welcome to Kutsher’s: The Last Catskills Resort, is coming to the Russell Theater! Kutsher’s Country Club was the last surviving Jewish resort in the Catskills. One of the legendary Borscht Belt hotels during its heyday, Kutsher’s was family-owned and operated for over 100 years, until its sale and demolition in 2014. Exploring the full Dirty Dancing-era Catskills experience through a close up look at Kutsher’s rise and fall, this award-winning film captures a last glimpse of a lost world as it disappears before our eyes.
