Sparrows (1926) at the IMA

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.

TICKETS AND PARKING: The IMA is located at the northwest corner of 38th St and Michigan Rd on the near west side. Tickets are $9/ $5 for IMA members and can be purchased, at the museum or online, in advance or on the evening of. Paid parking is available in the main surface lot and the garage for $5/ free for IMA members. There's free parking in the smaller lots located by the Michigan Rd entrance.

    Good movie and a beautiful print. The accompaniment really contributed to the effect.

    Just a note to all...the new restaurant in the IMA HAS NOT opened yet....all they have are cold sandwiches, drinks, and some salads at very expensive prices...no known opening date is available.

      Thanks, Doug! I was wondering about that. Guess we'll have to eat somewhere else tonight.
