July 11: The Man With A Movie Camera
An experimental 1929 silent documentary film about life as it is lived by Russian director Dziga Vertov, edited by his wife Elizaveta Svilova. Rated by Sight & Sound as the 8th best movie ever made. 68 minutes.
July 18: Pandora's Box
A 1929 German silent melodrama film directed by Austrian filmmaker Georg Wilhelm Pabst and starring the famous silent film star Louise Brooks as the carefree seductress whose uninhibited nature brings ruin to herself and to those who love her. 133 minutes.
July 25: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
This 1920 silent film, directed by Robert Wiene, is considered one of the most influential German Expressionist films and one of the greatest horror movies of all time. The abstract, jagged buildings painted on canvas are augmented by the unrealistic, dance-like movement of the actors. 71 minutes.
August 1: Buster Keaton's The General
Orson Welles said that Buster Keaton's The General, made in 1926, is "the greatest comedy ever made, the greatest Civil War film ever made, and perhaps the greatest film ever made." As always, Keaton performs his own stunts, combining his prodigious dexterity, impeccable comic timing, and expressive body language to convey more emotion than the stars of any of the talkies that were soon to dominate cinema. 79 minutes.
Admission is FREE to the public. Bring the family, bring your friends, and bring some popcorn.
