Silent Film Series: Lonesome
Central Library, Dweck Center
A buried treasure from Hollywood’s golden age, Lonesome is the creation of a little-known but audacious and one-of-a-kind filmmaker, Paul Fejos (also an explorer, anthropologist, and doctor!). While under contract at Universal, Fejos pulled out all the stops for this lovely, largely silent New York City symphony set in antic Coney Island during the Fourth of July weekend.
(1928) 69 Minutes USA
Hosted & Curated by Ken Gordon. Children under the age of six will not be admitted to these programs.
