Coming Soon: Music Films at FilmBar in Phoenix

FilmBar is the cinema-bar-lounge in Phoenix that keeps on giving. This week’s screening schedule caught the eye of The Spec because it’s full of music-themed films ranging in genre from documentary to foreign.

And to make matters better: LivingSocial is currently offering a deal that includes two FilmBar movie tickets and a bottle of wine or four draft beers for only $18. That’s a savings of 54 percent.

Check out trailers and showtimes for screenings this week…

While not entirely a music film, “Chicken with Plums” (Poulet aux prunes) is a foreign comedy/drama about Nasser Ali Khan, a renowned musician who loses his will to live after his wife breaks his violin.

SHOWTIMES:

Monday, Dec. 3 at 6:30 P.M.

Tuesday, Dec. 4 at 8:40 P.M.

Wednesday, Dec. 5 at 6:30 P.M.

Thursday, Dec. 6 at 10 P.M.

Friday, Dec. 7 at 6 P.M. 

Sunday, Dec. 9 at 6 P.M. and more.


Those who missed “Searching for Sugar Man” in regular theaters still have three opportunities to catch the documentary on Sixto Díaz Rodríguez, a mysterious rock ‘n’ roll musicians from the 1970s known as Rodriguez.

SHOWTIMES: 

Monday, Dec. 3 at 8:40 P.M.

Holy Motors” is a little bit of everything: “monster movie, film noir, romantic drama, musical, crime thriller, anime.” It’s the musical bits and Kylie Minogue‘s role as Eva Grace that has us intrigued.
