George Memorial Library hosts Saturday movie matinee

Fort Bend County Libraries will feature a free Saturday Movie Matinee at George Memorial Library, 1001 Golfview in Richmond, on February 8, beginning at 2:00 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library.

This 2010 documentary shines light on Conrad “Prof” Johnson and the Kashmere High School Stage Band in Houston. In the 1970s, Johnson turned this mediocre high-school jazz band, comprised of students from one of Houston’s roughest neighborhoods, into a legendary funk powerhouse garnering national attention.

Decades later, the band’s alumni return for a reunion concert paying tribute to their beloved “Prof,” the man who changed their lives through music. The film includes photos and footage of the band in their heyday, as well as interviews done at the reunion concert. This film is rated PG.

The movie is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. The libraries’ licensing agreement for public showing of films prohibits them from releasing the name of the movie outside of the library. For more information about the featured movie, call the libraries’ Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
