Join us for a silent movie with live piano accompaniment at the IMA.
From the IMA's event description: "Mary Pickford’s penultimate silent film is a Dickensian tale of orphans living on a baby farm run by an evil caretaker. The movie boasts highly stylized sets and atmospheric cinematography that illustrates the growing influence of German expressionist cinema on American filmmakers in the 1920s. The feature is preceded by the Sparrows trailer and outtakes."
There will be an introduction by the author of a recent biography of Pickford.
Running time is about 90 minutes. The movie starts at 7 in the Toby theater; we'll meet at 6:45 in the Toby lobby. If you can't make it before showtime, look for us in the Toby lobby after the movie as we gather for some good post-movie discussion.
