STG Presents Trader Joe's Silent Movie Mondays - Pandora's Box featuring Jim Riggs on the Mighty Wurlitzer Organ at The Paramount Theatre on Monday, January 27, 2014.
The second film in our ADORED & RESTORED series is PANDORA'S BOX (1929), directed by Austrian filmmaker G.W. Pabst and starring Louise Brooks, is a German dramatic silent based on Frank Wedekind's "Lulu" plays. Pabst searched for months for an actress to play Lulu and hired her as the only American and the featured star of the film. Brooks' portrayal of a seductive, thoughtless young woman, whose raw sexuality and uninhibited nature bring ruin to herself and those who love her, although initially unappreciated, eventually made the actress a star.
A special pick by the Seattle International Film Festival and their Women in Cinema Festival.
CineClub discussion led by Beth Barrett, SIFF's Director of Programming Running Time: 109 Minutes
ADORED AND RESTORED Winter Series focuses on the importance of film preservation and the art of cinema by presenting some of the most influential films from the silent movie era. Adored the world over, these films are important enough to be restored for future generations. Each film was a “special pick” by one of STG’s partners and includes a CineClub discussion led by a film professional. Highlights include Paramount movie history and its beginnings and livelihood as a movie palace.
