The tragically short and troubled life of visionary jazz saxophonist Charlie “Yardbird” Parker is brought to the screen by award-winning director and jazz connoisseur Clint Eastwood. For his portrayal of Parker, whose inner demons and wild substance abuse silenced his musical genius at age 34, Forest Whitaker won the best actor prize at the Cannes Film Festival.

Tickets are $12 with discounts for seniors, students, and BMFI members.
