Special advance screening of 'Blue Like Jazz' at Rave Stonybrook tonight [Movies

Life is funny sometimes, isn't it? An example: I grew up in a very religious household. When I turned eighteen, I went to a small college owned by the afore-mentioned religion. I hated it, and it was there that I began to discover that things aren't necessarily how I was taught they were. Long story short: I eventually rejected my childhood religion. On the other hand, though, we can imagine a very religious person attending a purely secular school. The sight of all the worldliness and “sin” could easily keep our hypothetical student firm in his or her beliefs, and possibly even strengthen them.

The latter scenario is the subject of the book “Blue Like Jazz,” written by Donald Miller, which recently got the big-screen treatment. The film, directed by Christian filmmaker and musician Steve Taylor, has yet to receive a wide theatrical release; however, Rave Motion Pictures Stonybrook presents a special one-time advance screening of the film tonight.

“Blue Like Jazz” tells the story of Don, who, on a whim, decides to leave his conservative college in Texas to attend school at the progressive Reed College in Portland. Culture shock awaits those who make such a drastic change, and Don finds himself re-evaluating his life and questioning everything.

“Blue Like Jazz” plays tonight (tonight being Tuesday) at Rave Stonybrook at 7:00. It doesn't look like advance ticket sales are available online; however, free movie passes can be acquired at Carmichael's bookstore, located at 1295 Bardstown Road and 2720 Frankfort Avenue.

Rave Stonybrook is located at 2745 South Hurstbourne Parkway.
