Tonight–Thursday June 4–in Brooklyn, a cheap night of silent films! Read on for more info:
In the era of silent film, live music enhanced the moving picture and brought communities together with a visceral, interactive audio-visual experience. Today, when the film experience has been reduced to the tiny screens of our laptops and iPods, oftentimes experienced alone, Cinema 16 offers a revival of community.
For this installment of Cinema 16, Nick Yulman and the Bone Conductor Mechanical score three films: Georges Méliès magical short L’homme orchestre (One Man Band), Charles Bowers’s long lost comical romp A Wild Roomer, and Maya Deren’s surrealist masterpiece Meshes of the Afternoon.
92 Plymouth Street, Brooklyn
