Calling all Leonard Cohen fans!
HALLELUJAH: LEONARD COHEN, A JOURNEY, A SONG is a new musical documentary
about the singer-songwriter-poet Leonard Cohen and the genesis of his enduring 1983 classic
The 2022 film will screen one night only at the Rosendale Theatre; the date marks what would have been the late Cohen’s 88th birthday.
HALLELUJAH explores the life and work of Cohen, focusing on the creation of his best-known
composition, which took nearly seven years to complete. It was initially rejected by the record
company. This feature-length documentary explores Cohen’s creative life and his times, the
song's dramatic journey from record label reject to chart-topping hit, and tributes by major
recording artists for whom the song “Hallelujah” has become a personal touchstone.
Reminiscences are provided by John Cale, the late Jeff Buckley, Judy Collins, Rufus
Wainwright, Regina Spektor, Brandi Carlile, Myles Kennedy, and Eric Church.
The film is presented by Rosendale Theatre’s Music Fan Series committee, focused on bringing
you the best in musical concert films, documentaries and biopics, as well as live concerts.
Covid Policy: Rosendale Theatre requests that masks be worn inside the theatre unless
you are at your seat eating or drinking.
