The Harder They Come 40th Anniversary Screening
The Harder They Come 40th Anniversary Screening With Live Reggae Music
Perry Henzell's landmark film The Harder They Come
was said to be responsible for introducing reggae music to the world, and Henzell has been called "the most important filmmaker to emerge from the Caribbean." Celebrate the 40th anniversary of this classic reggae film, and see it on the big screen with a live roots reggae pre-show by Boston Jazz Reggae Trio. Featuring one of the greatest soundtracks of all time, The Harder They Come
propelled Jimmy Cliff to international stardom. In the film, Cliff stars as an aspiring young singer who leaves his rural village for the capital city of Kingston, Jamaica. Running only into trouble and hard times, the country boy turns outlaw as he rises to the top of the pop charts and the most-wanted lists.

Kiss' Paul Stanley produced New England's debut album, launching the band to stardom on the strength of its Top 40 single "Don't Ever Wanna Lose Ya." A staple of AOR radio in the late '70s and early '80s, the Boston natives shared arena stages with such giants of rock as Journey, AC/DC, Cheap Trick and Kiss. Famed producer Mike Stone (Queen) guided New England's Explorer Suite, featuring the orchestral title track, "It's Never Too Late" and "Conversation," which highlighted the band's trademark lush vocal harmonies. The legendary Todd Rundgren brought out the band's hard rock side with anthemic tunes like "Don't Ever Let Me Go," "L-5" and "Holdin' Out On Me." Now the quartet of melodic power rockers is reuniting for its first full-length show since 1983. Learn More
