Calling all fans of Jazz Age music! Please join member Mary Stanford on the evening of Saturday, April 15 at Laemmle’s Music Hall in Beverly Hills for a special screening of “There’s A Future in the Past,” the new critically-acclaimed documentary about NYC’s Grammy-winning “vintage” bandleader Vince Giordano (Boardwalk Empire, Café Society, The Aviator). This event will include a live appearance by the filmmakers and Vince Giordano. Join us in welcoming Vince to L.A. for this special appearance.
(Please note that Vince Giordano & the Nighthawks will not be performing at this event, but we hear that Vince will be sitting in with the band at the Cicada Club).

Attendees are invited to meet for a pre-screening cocktail (or a light supper) at the lounge/restaurant of the circa 1927 Crescent Hotel. We’ll be there from 5:00 until 7:00 pm. Then we’ll head over to the theater (a 15 minute walk from the hotel).

All are welcome. Persons under 21 are allowed at the restaurant. Attendees are responsible for booking their own tickets to the film which will begin promptly at 7:40 pm.

As always, vintage attire is admired, but certainly not required
We strongly recommend that all attendees purchase tickets in advance to guarantee a seat. Ticketing is through the venue (Laemmle’s Music Hall ). Purchase your ticket for the screening on Sat., 4/15/17 at 7:40 pm, please use the theatre’s ticketing site:

About Vince Giordano:
Bandleader, historian, and collector Vince Giordano has devoted his life to music created before he was born: the early jazz of the 1920s and ‘30s. His 11-piece band The Nighthawks is known as the hottest band in New York, if not the world; and Vince is Hollywood’s go-to source for authentic period soundtracks, with his collection of vintage musical instruments and 60,000 original band arrangements. Vince is responsible for the period music in Todd Haynes’ Carol, Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator, Robert DeNiro’s The Good Shepherd, Francis Ford Coppola’s The Cotton Club, Gus Van Sant’s Finding Forrester, Sam Mendes’ Revolutionary Road, Terry Zwigoff’s Ghost World, half a dozen Woody Allen films, and HBO’s Grammy winning Boardwalk Empire.

If you are unable to attend on April 15th, but want to catch this movie, please see the theater’s website for other dates/times for this limited engagement.
