Free Community Screening of “The Ukes in America” Documentary

The Ukes in America

Come and join us on February 8, 2015 for the Coquitlam Premiere of “The Ukes in America”, a documentary about the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain’s tour across the United States produced by the independent filmmaker Robert Stern at Litmus Films.

We thank Litmus Films for letting us purchase a community screening license for this film and for the generous assistance of the Glen Pine Pavilion staff and for the use of their facility to hold this event.

To reserve seats, please call 604.927.4386 and mention barcode 518262 during Monday to Friday between 8:30 am and 7:00 pm.


Your back-of-the-tour-bus seat on The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain’s anarchic first coast-to-coast tour of the USA. America is The Ukes’ major musical inspiration, but what will Americans make of the cult heroes’ British humour and ukulele musicianship? The Ukes In America features barnstorming stage performances, impromptu jams and guerrilla gigs in unlikely venues, including eight previously unrecorded songs.

From Carnegie Hall to California, from the NY subway to a San Franciso cafe, The Ukes In America is bursting with unexpected encounters, genre-bending music and self-deprecating wit. Backstage, on the road and at play, unique access reveals an intimate, fun and compelling portrait of this unique band.
