Join us on Wednesday, June 12 at 7:30 p.m. at the Laemmle NoHo 7 Theatre for a screening of “The Girls in the Band” followed by snacks and sips at The Federal with the film’s director, Judy Chaikin.
The screening is FREE for SingularCity Members! Others are invited to join us, but must purchase their tickets at the box office.
“The Girls in the Band” chronicles the challenges and triumphs of female musicians breaking into the male dominated world of big band, swing and jazz music. Set against a stark background of racism and sexism, “The Girls in the Band” paints a definitive picture of those courageous women and their unheralded journey from the 1930s to the present day.
