Bolden, about jazz pioneer Buddy Bolden, was shown in 232 theaters when it premiered Friday, May 3rd. As of May 31st, it is no longer playing anywhere. This doesn’t mean the film will never be on the big screen in your area, call your local specialty theaters and tell them to pick up the movie as a second run. Bolden is now also available as premium content on several online streaming services including Youtube and Amazon Prime.
As the only national magazine with a focus on early jazz and the people making it today, The Syncopated Times has tapped our experts to bring you a whole issue worth of special coverage of Bolden, his life, his music, and his legacy. See it all here: The Real Buddy Bolden.
