In honor of Mississippi's 2017 Bicentennial, the Delta Blues Museum will present a monthly outdoor film series on the stage that reflects the state's rich musical heritage. A brief discussion and/or Question and Answer session will be held prior to each screening to explain the movie's connection to Delta Blues music with filmmaker and critic Coop Cooper.
The 1957 film "Jailhouse Rock" showcases the influence of blues on Elvis' music. In case of inclement weather, the films will be shown in the upstairs meeting room of the museum, which is ADA accessible. Guests are encouraged to bring their own seating--each screening will start at approximately 8PM.
