Posted By on Thu, Oct 23, 2014 at 2:09 PM

The 2014 New Orleans Film Festival's week-long, city-wide immersion in new films of every imaginable kind closes tonight, Oct. 23, with two screenings of The Big Beat. Directed by Joe Lauro, the film tells the story of New Orleans R&B through the lens of Fats Domino's and Dave Bartholomew's storied careers. Both screenings take place at the newly renovated Carver Theater, 2101 Orleans Avenue in Treme.

A red carpet premiere is scheduled for 7:00 p.m., and will be followed by a performance by local musicians paying tribute to Domino and Bartholomew, plus a Q&A with Lauro, editor Anthea Carr, writer Rick Coleman, cinematographer David Leonard and "special guests." A limited number of standby tickets will be available at the door. Premiere attendees and all-access pass-holders are invited to an after-party hosted by Ponderosa Stomp at Cafe Degas, 3127 Esplanade Ave., from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.

An encore screening of The Big Beat is scheduled for 10 p.m. at the Carver. Tickets are still available online here.
