Living On Soul

Midnite weekend screenings happen on Friday & Saturday nights (meaning arrive on Friday and/or Saturday night by 11:45pm for seating, the movie starts after midnite)!

Director: Cory Bailey, Jeff Broadway Run Time: 96 min. Format: DCP

Starring: Charles Bradley, Sharon Jones, Thomas Brenneck

LIVING ON SOUL is a hybrid docu-concert film featuring the late Sharon Jones, Charles Bradley and the rest of the Daptone Records family. Filmed largely during Daptone’s December 2014 three-night, sold-out residency at the historic Apollo Theater in Harlem, the documentary features a mixture of live performances and verité scenes that paint a robust picture of the Daptone family and culture.

The performances and stories bring to mind a bygone era of films,  entertainment and craftsmanship. The documentary molds itself after The Last Waltz, Monterey Pop and Soul Power; and not since James Brown’s legendary residencies in the 70s has Harlem’s Apollo Theater played host to such an event.
