Film about Leonard Cohen in the Gross-Gauer cinema

BIG-ROUGH. (schl). The communal cinema in Groß-Gerau is showing the film “Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen, A Journey, A Song” on Tuesday, March 28th. The song “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen (1934 to 2016) is at the center of the documentary portrait of the Canadian singer with Jewish roots – a song that he allegedly worked on for at least seven years and for which he wrote countless verses. However, Cohen’s record label “Columbia Records” rejected the song, which then went around the world as a cover version of famous artists and became a catchy tune. Based on this song and with partly unreleased archive material and many interviews, the thoughtful film traces the changeable career of Leonard Cohen in an entertaining and inspiring way, according to the announcement. Film screenings are at 5:45 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. in the Lichtspielhaus, Mittelstrasse 2/corner of Darmstädter Strasse. The entrance fee is 5.50 euros; Members of the Friends of the VHS only pay 4 euros. The cinema opens half an hour before the film starts. The cinema tickets should be reserved by calling 06152-2521 (AB), but spontaneous visits to the film screenings are also possible.
