Join us for an ultimate film date night, as we screen one of the most visually sumptuous and emotionally rewarding films from silent Hollywood. In F.W. Murnau’s classic melodrama, Anses (George O’Brien), a sensitive and easily-swayed farmer, falls under the spell of The Woman From The City (Margaret Livingston), a jezebel who convinces him to run off with her — but only after he murders his innocent wife Indre (Janet Gaynor). Murnau used his expert German Expressionist techniques to craft a fairytale ride through the tortured mental landscape of a man caught between devotion and seduction, making Sunrise (widely regarded as one of the best films ever made) the most vibrant of all his Hollywood productions. For those who purchase reserved couch seating for this very special show, your ticket price includes complimentary champagne, a romantic snack assortment, and pre-show concession service at your seat!
Dir. F. W. Murnau, 1927, 35mm, 95 min.
