About the Event
Join us for live jazz from Trio Montagne before the start of the film on Friday April 16, plus drink specials all night during advance previews of the Golden Globe Award winning The United States Vs. Billie Holiday.
The legendary Billie Holiday, one of the greatest jazz musicians of all time, spent much of her career being adored by fans across the globe.
Beginning in the 1940’s in New York City, the federal government targeted Holiday in a growing effort to escalate and racialize the war on drugs, ultimately aiming to stop her from singing her controversial and heart wrenching ballad, “Strange Fruit.”
Led by Oscar® nominated director Lee Daniels and introducing Grammy® nominated singer-songwriter Andra Day, The United States vs. Billie Holiday unapologetically presents the icon’s complicated, irrepressible life.
