Side by Side ”Live at Mister Kelly’s” Film + Joe Alterman Trio Performance

August 21, 2022 Atlanta $18.00

Side by Side is a series of live performances and conversations that explores Jewish contributions to and stories behind the art.

The series is co-presented by two non-profit organizations whose missions stand side by side in promoting the arts and Jewish culture in our community: Neranenah, a concert and cultural event series with roots in Jewish culture and musical traditions and The Breman, which exists to connect people to Jewish history, culture, and arts.

How two visionary Jewish nightclub owners worked side by side to change the face of entertainment.

Live at Mister Kelly’s is the story of two legendary Chicago night clubs – London House & Mister Kelly’s – both of which illuminated the entire country by launching talent like Barbra Streisand, Herbie Hancock, Bette Midler, and Richard Pryor. Its Jewish visionary owners George and Oscar Marienthal smashed color and gender barriers to put fresh, irreverent voices in the spotlight and transform entertainment in the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ’70s.

The film includes interviews and appearances by Barbra Streisand, Bob Newhart, the Smothers Brothers, Dick Gregory, Lainie Kazan, Herbie Hancock, Dick Cavett, Jerry Stiller, Bette Midler, Lanie Kazan, Lily Tomlin, Mort Sahl, Della Reese, Tim Reid, Fred Willard, Ramsey Lewis – and more.

Live at Mister Kelly’s was scored by Neranenah’s Executive Director, Joe Alterman (who also appears in the film alongside Ramsey Lewis). Along with his band, Joe will be performing songs from the score after the screening.

Doors Open at 2:30 PM, Film Starts at 3 PM
