"On the theme of Lulu" is the title of a series of film screenings, talks, and musical performances taking place in Belgium. The series is being put on by La Monnaie De Munt, the Royal Opera House of Belgium, with each event relating to the Alban Berg opera, Lulu. Among the events is an October 18th screening of the 1929 G.W. Pabst film, Pandora's Box or LouLou, in which Louise Brooks stars as Lulu. Coincidentally, Pandora's Box also features the Belgian born actress Alice Roberts, who plays the Countess Geschwitz. Click on the links for more info.
