Stony Island

Andy Davis, 1978, 97 min.

Filmed on the gritty street of Chicago’s South Side, Stony Island tells the story of Richie Bloom (Richie Davis), the only white kid on the block, as he forms an R&B band with his best friend, Kevin (Edward Stoney Robinson). With the help of their mentor, aging sax legend Percy (Gene Daddy G Barge), they pull together a funky supergroup. Despite few resources and heavy losses this resilient group of dedicated musicians, armed only with wit, sleight of hand and outrageous Chicago bravado must come together to finally make their smash debut.

Director Andy Davis in attendance! Come early for a casual reception beginning at 2:30pm.

Presented by Nancy Watrous, Executive Director of Chicago Film Archives and Black Cinema House Advisory Committee Member.

Seating is limited – BCH asks that attendees RSVP in advance. Please note that they cannot guarantee seats for attendees who do not RSVP.
