  • 4 and 7pm, Friday (Sep 27) 7:00pm Saturday (Sep 28), 3:00pm, Sunday (Sep 29), 2:00pm, Monday (Sep 30) , Cinema Art Theater, 17701 Dartmouth Drive in Dartmouth Plaza (behind the Lewes Wawa).

'Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool' is a superbly crafted musical documentary that taps deep into the mystique of Miles Davis: his sound, stardom, and cult of personality.

A horn player, bandleader, innovator, Miles was a singular force of nature, the very embodiment of cool. The central theme of his life, and of this film, is Davis' restless determination to break boundaries and live life on his own terms. This film explores archival photos and home movies shot by Miles and his colleagues, his manuscripts, and original paintings. Featuring interviews with some of the most well-known musicians on the planet, including Jimmy Cobb, Lee Konitz, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, Carlos Santana, The Roots, and Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers; the film explores why Miles continues to be a relevant voice in today's world.
