Pandora’s Box (1929), Dir. G. W. Pabst: In this acclaimed German silent film, Lulu (Louise Brooks) is a young woman so beautiful and alluring that few can resist her siren charms. The men drawn into her web include respectable newspaper publisher Dr. Ludwig Schön (Fritz Kortner), his musical producer son Alwa (Franz Lederer), circus performer Rodrigo Quast (Krafft-Raschig) and Lulu’s seedy old friend, Schigolch (Carl Goetz). When Lulu’s charms inevitably lead to tragedy, the downward spiral encompasses them all.Garden party at 6:30pm, silent film begins at 8pm. Endless refreshments (savory & sweet) available. Not just our famous popcorn, so come hungry! Your entire $20 donation goes to support St. Mary’s Church and its mission to fight homelessness and hunger in west Harlem. Ishmael Wallace will improvise the live organ accompaniment to the film on St. Mary’s historic church organ, which includes parts dating back to the nineteenth century.
