Films That Made Music: Jazz on a Summer's Day

Tuesday, October 19, 2021 @ 7:00pm



Hopewell Theater
5 S. Greenwood Avenue, Hopewell, NJ, 08525



  • The 1959 classic is considered one of the most extraordinary and possibly the first concert film ever made.

  • Its sparkling new 4K restoration by IndieCollect, with color correction by Oskar Miarka, recently premiered at the 57th New York Film Festival with sold out shows.

  • The film was named to the National Film Registry in 1999, and its restoration was funded by the National Film Preservation Board of the Library of Congress in time to celebrate the film's 60th Anniversary.

Filmed at the 1958 Newport Jazz Festival in Rhode Island and directed by world-renowned photographer, Bert Stern. JAZZ ON A SUMMER'S DAY features intimate performances by an all-star line-up of musical legends including Louis Armstrong, Thelonius Monk, Gerry Mulligan, Anita O'Day, Chuck Berry, Dinah Washington, and closes with a beautiful rendition of The Lord's Prayer by Mahalia Jackson at midnight to usher in Sunday morning.



This program is a part of Hopewell Theater's ongoing series, Films That Made Music, rock-docs and movies about some of the most legendary pop, rock, and R&B groups of our time. These beloved films provide an unvarnished look at iconic musicians and offer deeper insights into the music that defines our lives.
