4 Nights of Picnic & Silent Film with Live Organ

This summer, Silent Salon goes into its 4th season.

Curated by renowned film historian Cari Beauchamp we will present a summer of comedy featuring the great comediennes of the silent screen. These powerful women dominated the silent screen during the tens and early 1920s and brought millions of movie goers to theaters every week. As an added attraction, several of the films will feature Los Angeles locations, giving today’s audience a glimpse of what the Southland looked like at the time – prepare yourself for crowds at Santa Monica auto races, great swaths of farmland, dirt roads, and the just built Beverly Hills Hotel.

Saturday, August 6 @ 8:15 p.m.

Southern California Premiere of the Restored Copy!!
A Woman of the World (1925, 104 min.) stars Pola Negri in a comedy about a worldly European Countess who comes to visit her American cousin to find culture shock at every turn. Today, Negri is associated with playing the classic “vamp” character, but here she shows she could also be a delightful comedienne. Directed by Mal St. Clair, this film has just been restored by Paramount and will have its preservation premiere at the San Francisco Silent Film Festival in June. This screening will be the first in Southern California.
