Pandora's Box to screen in Los Angeles, July 1

Pandora's Box will be shown in Los Angeles on July 1st. Here are the details. 

Wednesday, July 1
Orpheum Theatre 
842 S. Broadway
Pandora's Box (Germany, 1929, 109 minutes, black/white)
Considered one of the greatest silent films ever made, Pandora’s Box tells the story of Lulu, a basically sweet-natured but amoral woman whose flirtations and affairs with a number of men (and at least one woman) lead to devastation. Beautiful and mesmerizing, Louise Brooks gives a complex and iconic performance as Lulu. Lushly photographed, with compelling performances from the entire cast, the film was directed by German master G. W. Pabst based on plays by Frank Wedekind. Co-starring Francis Lederer.

Special Program: Acclaimed organist Robert Israel will accompany the film on the Orpheum’s Mighty Wurlitzer organ. Hosting the evening is Hugh Munro Neely, film historian and director of the documentary Louise Brooks, Looking for Lulu.
