Pandora's Box with Louise Brooks plays in Detroit, MI on March 28

The Redford Theatre in Detroit will screen Pandora's Box (1929) on Saturday, March 28th at 8 p.m. The Redford Theatre, with its original 3 manual, 10 rank Barton Theatre Pipe Organ, has served as a Metro Detroit entertainment center since it opened on January 27, 1928 -- just a year before the legendary Louise Brooks' film opened in Berlin.

The historic Redford Theatre is located at 17360 Lahser Road in Detroit, Michigan. The theatre is owned and operated by the non-profit Motor City Theatre Organ Society. The Redford Theatre is operated by an all-volunteer staff. Proceeds from programs presented at the Redford are used to restore and maintain the theatre building (depicted below).

On it's Facebook page, The Redford Theater, posted this: "VINTAGE FILM FANS PLEASE SHARE THIS: Rare screening of PANDORA'S BOX, 1929 silent starring LOUISE BROOKS, the movie's first and most beautiful femme fatale - the movie the American actress went to Germany to make with G.W. Pabst. The 8 pm Saturday, March 28 event includes a rare, uninterrupted 35mm print of the film, organ accompaniment by the amazing John Lauter, intro by writer and film historian John Monaghan, and a post-film discussion where you get to talk about Brooks's lasting impact on film and fashion. Downton Abbey's Lady Mary even adopted her iconic hair style!!!! SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR OLDER MOVIES AT THE REDFORD BY ATTENDING THIS FILM!!!!! Share, share, share."

Thanks to Mark G. Sun for word about this event.
