Re: “Danny Says”
From: The Bijou Film Center

On Sat., Sept. 24: The Bijou Film Center will present “Danny Says” in its screening room at 304 E. Broad St. “Danny Says” is a new film about Danny Fields and his considerable influence on pop music, mid-60s to mid-'80s.
In conjunction with cinemas coast-to-coast, The Bijou will be participating in the first national Art House Theater Day. Accordingly, The Bijou will present “Danny Says” – a thoroughly entertaining new documentary that provides an insider's view of the music business. It will play one day only, a week before its national theatrical release.

Admission: $9 at the door. No advance tickets.

Show times: 5 p.m., 7:25 p.m., 9:45 p.m.

Danny Says” (2016): Color. 104 minutes. Directed by Brendan Toller. Cast: Danny Fields, Iggy Pop, the Ramones, MC 5, Alice Cooper, Judy Collins, Andy Warhol, Nico, Jann Wenner and more.

Note: Toller's cleverly edited film is about the rock 'n' roll life of Danny Fields, who crossed paths with legendary pop culture characters and managed some edgy, well known acts. The shaping role Fields played in the development of punk rock is fascinating. This doc should win awards. (Trailer)
