Thanks to the popularity of music-related film screenings last year, the Charleston Music Hall has decided to make movie night a regular event each month.

First up is “Who is Gil Scott-Heron?” by BAFTA-nominated film-makers Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard. Scott-Heron was a poetic soul and jazz musician best known for his spoken word performances in the ‘70s and ‘80s. This film tells his story from the point of view of his colleagues, friends and loved ones.

The the venue will screen “Shut Up and Play the Hits” on June 24, and “The Big Lebowski” for the third annual Lebowski Celebration on July 9.

The roster through October includes screenings of “It Might Get Loud,” “Joy Division Documentary,” and the “Rocky Horror Picture Show,” though dates for those have not yet been announced.

Tickets are $8 in advance, $10 at the door, and shows start at 8 p.m.
