Just over 15 years since his tragic death and the same week as what would have been his 50th birthday, the Brattle invites you to this special celebration of the legendary singer/songwriter’s life and career.

This evening begins with a screening of the acclaimed 2014 documentary HEAVEN ADORES YOU and will be capped off by live musical performances in tribute to Smith from Doug Tuttle and Mary Lou Lord (along with her daughter Annabelle Lord-Patey).

A portion of the proceeds from tonight’s event will be donated to the Cambridge-based Institute for Health and Recovery. Tickets for this special event are $20 general admission; $15 students, seniors, and Brattle members. No Brattle passes.

“This is a sweet, generous film, as sweet and generous as its subject was known to be. The dark stuff will have to wait.”
– Andrew Hultkrans, Artforum

“A soulful, moving tribute that doesn’t try to have the last word.”
– Rachel Kramer Bussel, Daily Beast
