Screening of ‘The Last Waltz’ on Wednesday

“The Last Waltz,” a documentary by Martin Scorcese on The Band’s farewell concert that took place on Thanksgiving Day in 1976, will be shown at the Jamestown Arts Center on Wednesday, Nov. 14, at 7 p.m. The concert was held at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco, the same place The Band made its debut seven years earlier. The Band consisted of Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, Richard Manuel and Robbie Robertson. Tables will be set up at the arts center and participants are invited to bring their own dinner and drinks, as well as dress up in 1970s garb. Cost is $10. Seating is limited, so visit the JAC in advance to purchase a ticket.
