Music and Movies team up for this week’s agenda. What better way to make more room for spring than legendary musicians and adventurous films?
END OF WATCH
In this documentary-style movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal, we follow the daily grind of two young police officers in LA, who are partners and friends. What happens when they meet criminal forces greater than themselves? Premiering today, March 14th, don’t miss it!
MUSIC AND OSCARS
Michel Legrand is a legendary composer that has already won three Oscars for his movie soundtracks. “Umbrellas of Cherbourg”, “The Go Between”, ”I will wait for you” and “Windmills of your mind” are some of his most popular songs and Monsieur Legrand, even though in his eighties, will visit Athens for three special concerts. From March 15th to March 17th at Gazarte. Get ready for an amazing experience.
Almost 43 years have passed since the death of Jimi Hendrix and a whole new album with the musician’s last treasures is prepared for Jimi’s fans around the world. “People, Hell & Angels” consists of twelve studio recordings, which are dated between 1968 and 1969. Listen to his legacy and remember one of the best musicians ever.
THE BEATLES ARE THE FAB FIVE
Photographer Harry Benson was warmly welcomed into the Beatles’ everyday life in early 1964 and he took the chance to document the “Beatlemania”, as the english band conquered the world. His luminous black and white photographs show at close quarters The Beatles composing, performing, meeting their fans and relaxing, while trying to get used to their increasing fame. Hundreds of photos, many previously unseen, are now published by Taschen for the music band’s loyal fans, in the price of 50EUR.
