Sun Ra’s SPACE IS THE PLACE

SHOWTIMES / BUY TICKETS
First show: July 26

Brand new digital restoration from original 35mm elements! Don’t miss Sun Ra’s sci-fi, blaxploitation free jazz epic!

Producer Jim Newman in person for the Wednesday 7/26 show!

In SPACE IS THE PLACE, space-age prophet, Pharaonic jester, shaman-philosopher and avant-jazz keyboardist/bandleader Sun Ra lands his spaceship in Oakland, having been presumed lost in space for a few years. With Black Power on the rise, Ra disembarks and proclaims himself “the alter-destiny.” He duels at cards with The Overseer, a satanic overlord, with the fate of the black race at stake. Ra wins the right to a world concert, which features great performance footage of the Arkestra.

As the Arkestra tours America, landing in San Francisco on August 6th, producer Jim Newman has created a brand-new digital restoration to ensure that future generations get to experience the majesty of this brilliantly cosmic, surreal 1974 classic.
