A Day of Silents

SEE EVENT DETAILS
A DAY OF SILENTS takes place at the beautiful Castro Theatre on Saturday, December 7. Five programs with LIVE music provided by Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra, Donald Sosin, and Berklee Silent Film Orchestra! A day of stunning silent cinema and thrilling live music not to be missed!

The day begins with three comedy shorts by the endlessly entertaining duo of Fatty Arbuckle and Buster Keaton. These morning laughs are followed by more serious fare. In REDSKIN, Navajo Wing Foot navigates between his western education and the traditions passed down by tribal elders. Our third program, WOMAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA, brings French filmmaker Alice Guy-Blache to the Castro screen. One of the very first directors to make narrative films, her work is marked by innovation. The program includes six of her shorts. At 5pm, Ernst Lubitsch works narrative magic with knowing looks and subtle gestures in THE MARRIAGE CIRCLE. We close out the day with the oldest surviving film version of PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. Starring Lon Chaney--the Man of a Thousand Faces--in his most celebrated role, the disfigured, cloaked "phantom" who haunts the Paris Opera House will do anything for his beloved Christine. With original Technicolor and hand coloring!
