"Miles Ahead" Opens in Theaters

The new movie, Miles Ahead, directed by and starring Oscar-winning actor Don Cheadle, opened nationwide today.  It is currently in local theaters (check local listings).  Miles Ahead is based on the life of jazz artist Miles Davis.  The movie also co-stars Ewan McGregor.

What does this have to do with Dayton police history?

In August 2014, Cheadle filmed his jail scene at the Dayton Safety Building Jail.  The fourth-floor cell used for the filming appears in this collage image along with pictures of the actors and character portrayed.  The Dayton police jail opened in 1956 and closed 30 years later.  Today it is a storage area.
