|Classic Cinema Club - Coming Up April|
Pianist to play live at screening on Friday
You are invited to a season of some of the best German films.
FRI 20 April– People on Sunday (1930) with Live pianist
This effervescent, sunlit silent, about a handful of city dwellers (a charming cast of non-professionals) enjoying a weekend outing, offers a rare glimpse of Weimar-era Berlin. People on Sunday was both an experiment and a mainstream hit that would influence generations of film artists around the world
This film experience will be greatly heightened by live music, played by Cyrus Barysch, a pianist with years of experience at playing "live", originally for ballet classes and more recently for the BFI and the Cinema Museum. He will shortly become the resident pianist at the Mayfair Curzon.
FRI 27 April - Wings of Desire (1987)
Damiel, an angel high over Berlin falls in love with a beautiful trapeze artist, he is willing to give up his immortality and return to earth to be with her. Made just before the fall of the of the Berlin wall, these sounds and images are movie poetry - and made the name Wim Wenders synonymous with film art.
Tickets cost £7 & £6 (concs) plus £1 temporary membership for non- members.
