When St. Louis native Chuck Berry died earlier this year, the entire world mourned the passing of the rock ’n’ roll pioneer. SLIFF pays tribute to the legendary songwriter, singer, and guitarist with a screening of “Chuck Berry Hail! Hail! Rock ’n’ Roll,” which was filmed by director Taylor Hackford on the occasion of Berry’s 60th birthday. The documentary captures a pair of epic concerts staged in 1986 at the Fox Theatre, with Berry performing with an all-star roster of admiring musicians.

In the Heat of the Night

As timely and relevant as it was in 1967 — an especially fraught time in the civil-rights movement, when American cities were riven by race riots — “In the Heat of the Night” celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. An Oscar® winner as Best Picture, the film was shot in nearby Sparta, Ill.
