Another chance to see 'Diary of a Decade'

Jill Scott in a scene from Diary of a Decade

An FYI to local soul heads: If you have yet to see the documentary Funk Jazz Kafé: Diary of a Decade, whicle chronicles the history of Atlanta's famed live soul music/culture event the Funk Jazz Kafé, and the "neo-soul" genre in general, you get another opportunity when it screens tonight (Thurs., April 4) at the Plaza Theatre.

The film - starring folks like Jill Scott, Cornell West, Doug E. Fresh, and more, and produced and directed by Funk Jazz creator Jason Orr (who will also be on hand for a post-flick Q&A) - has been touring theaters around the nation for the last few months. The version that plays tonight is reportedly a new 118-minute cut of the movie, and a portion of this screening's proceeds go to benefit local community-owned radio station WRFG.

$15. 7 p.m. The Plaza Theatre, 1049 Ponce De Leon Ave, NE. To purchase tickets and for more info, visit http://tinyurl.com/cjdbaqc.
