2020, UK, 104 min

Ronnie’s is an exceptional story about one of London’s greatest ever institutions – the jazz nightclub Ronnie Scott’s – one of the last remaining vestiges of old, bohemian Soho. Chronicling an incredible journey through late 50s and early 60s Soho, the film is not just for jazz fans; it also tells the extraordinary story of how two working-class Londoners (Ronnie Scott and co-founder Pete King) contributed to the cultural life of a great city, making it a vital social document. They were inspired by the vibrant post-war jazz venues they discovered on New York’s 52nd Street. Since then, Ronnie Scott’s Club has played host to the world’s greatest jazz legends. Featuring rare interviews and terrific unseen archival live performances of Chet Baker, Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Dizzy Gillespie, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Ella Fitzgerald, Van Morrison, Buddy Rich and Nina Simone.

Co-presented by the TD Winnipeg International Jazz Festival.

Reviews

Such a joyous, visually stunning film - It’s a beautiful piece of work.
-Phil Williams, Times Radio
Watching Murray’s film, it is hard not to fall in love with Ronnie Scott’s and its remarkable story. Jazz fan or no, Ronnie’s is a joy.
- Jane Douglas - Jones, 500 Days of FILM.
An incredibly important film, It’s beautifully, sensitively and perfectly presented…
- Stephen Fry
An exemplary doc. The founding myths are lively and fascinating. But it’s the study of Ronnie himself, with his depressions and doubts, that provides the depth and soul.
- Jason Solomons
