Retroformat 10th Anniversary
Sponsored by the George Lucas Family Foundation

Join us as we celebrate 10 years of rare silent films in the Spielberg! For a decade, Retroformat: Rare Silent Gems has brought you a brilliant cross-section of the finest silent films, featuring artists from Felix the Cat to Erich von Stroheim, always with great live accompaniment by Retroformat musical director Cliff Retallick. For this special celebration, we will present some of our favorite shorts, including Lillian Gish in “The Mothering Heart” (1913), Felix the Cat in “Felix Dines and Pines” (1924), Gloria Swanson and Wallace Beery in “Teddy at the Throttle” (1917), plus our annual William S. Hart feature, “The Darkening Trail” (1915), a disturbingly film noir-ish melodrama about jealousy and revenge, set in the Alaskan gold rush, with typically brilliant acting plus masterful, brooding direction by Hart himself.

Hosted by Tom Barnes. With live musical accompaniment by Cliff Retallick.
120 minutes. | Screening format: 8mm
