Cinema @ Scotland St. Presents: Amazing Grace

September 25, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Aretha Franklin

G | 1hr 29min | Documentary, Music | 2018Filmed in 1972 at L.A.’s New Temple Missionary Baptist Church, this transcendent concert captured Aretha Franklin at the height of her prodigious powers. While the audio recording became the bestselling gospel album of all time, the film languished for decades before its release. Come hear the Queen of Soul in a “soul-stirring, foot-stomping, hand-raising experience.”
“As a document of an iconic musician’s skills, the film is essential. But Amazing Grace is far more than that: Watching it is a transcendent, spine-tingling, uplifting, utterly joyous experience. As cherished as the album version has been since its release, the film is nothing short of a revelation, soaring from one chill-inducing moment to another.” — Anastasia Tsioulcas, NPR
