John Stewart's Classic Rock Film Series features more movies in 2019!  Free

showings will take place the first Wednesday* of each month from March -November.

Even if you have seen some before, advances in film and sound technology have also made it  possible to improve the visual and audio quality concerts that had been previously released.

Several of the remastered films being featured this season also include performances and other bonus material not included in the original versions.

Taking in these concerts on the big screen at Unity Hall is a lot like experiencing them as they happened, with none of the expense and hassles the original audiences had to put up with. They're close to home, parking and admission is free, you get to decide what donation the refreshments we offer are worth, the restrooms are clean,  we've upgraded our seat cushions, and there won't be someone on someone else's shoulders blocking your view!

* Some films will be on different Wednesdays due to holidays or John's availability. Please check
here or at to confirm dates.


Carole King
Live ay Montreux 1973

Wednesday, October 2, 7pm

FREE Admission - Refreshments Available

Carole King was so petrified by the prospect of performing her own songs live that she refused to tour.  Another inherently bashful musician gave her little choice.  Carly played piano backing James Taylor at the Troubador in Los Angeles in the early 70's.  James introduced her and then asked her to do a couple of her songs.  Rattled but not wanting to embarrass James and herself by refusing, she tentatively began to play and sing. The audience reaction was so instantly positive and supportive that she quickly gained confidence and got over her stage fright.

King's first concert outside the US was at the prestigious Montreux Jazz Festival. It was a command performance. Enjoy it in good company on the giant HD screen at Unity Hall.

Doors open at 6:30. Admission is free, and refreshments are available.

This will be the 2019 finale of John Stewart's Classic Rock Film Series at Unity Hall. Look forward to future screenings starting in the spring. 

Many Unity Hall programs are made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program,a re-grant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by CNY Arts.
