January’s theme is “Behind the Screen: Movies on Movies”
This week’s film is The Last Command – an arrestingly visual silent masterwork by the forgotten director Josef von Sternberg.
“A former Imperial Russian general and cousin of the Czar ends up in Hollywood as an extra in a movie directed by a former revolutionary.”
- Showtime is 8:30 pm and after each screening, all will be invited to go into the downstairs conference room where a discussion of the film will be held. Meals from various local restaurants will be available for purchase at the discussions. Various scholars and critics will also be attending the screenings & discussions.
- FREE Movies every Tuesday at the Electric Theater!
