Tonight: Buffalo Film Seminars opens with ‘Pandora’s Box’

Tonight, the Buffalo Film Seminars in Buffalo, New York opens its annual film series with Pandora’s Box (1929), starring Louise Brooks. More information about the season long series can be found HERE (pdf).

This is not the first time the Buffalo Film Seminars have screened this classic German silent directed by G.W. Pabst. Many consider Pandora's Box not only Brooks' finest film, but one of the greatest silent films of the late silent era.  More information about this film can be found on the Louise Brooks Society filmography page devoted to it.

The local Buffalo News ran a piece about the event.

The Buffalo Film Seminars take place Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. promptly at the Amherst Theatre, 3500 Main Street, in the University Plaza, directly across the street from UB's Main St Campus.

Each week Diane Christian and Bruce Jackson introduce the film, the film is screened, and then have an open discussion with students in a University at Buffalo film class and anyone else who cares to join us.

Tickets for the seminars are adults $9.50, students $7.50, seniors $7.00. Season tickets are available any time at a 15% reduction for the cost of the remaining films. There is ample free parking, with a disabled parking zone close to the theatre.

Handouts with production details, anecdotes and critical comments about each week's film on goldenrod paper are available in the theatre lobby 45 minutes before each session. The Goldenrod handouts are posted online one day before the screening. (All previous handouts are also online.)

The Buffalo Film Seminars are presented by the Dipson's Amherest Theatre and the University at Buffalo.
