Robin Hood (1922) with live music!
Tuesday, September 12 at 7 PM - 9:30 PM
Hosted by Public Domain Xinema and Clinton Street Theater
Join us for our next show, the Douglas Fairbanks classic, Robin Hood (1922) with live music by a team of fantastic musicians. The film is a majestic, silent swashbuckler featuring the immortal Fairbanks as Robin Hood, Wallace Beery as King Richard and the great Alan Hale as Little John. It's the classic story that has been given more film treatments the Bible, getting one of its first, and perhaps greatest, big screen adaptations from one of the big screen's greatest stars. Plus it will be getting a unique virtuoso treatment right in the theater from musicians coming in from Corvallis to play with Portland experimental-jazz improv pros. This will be a never-before-seen cut of the film with a never-before-heard score performed live in the theater. Plus, with a newsreel and cartoon before hand to really take you back to 1922, a brief historical introduction from host Ygal Kaufman, and delicious concessions on hand from the Clinton Street Theater, it's almost difficult to justify not going.
There is a suggested donation of $5-$8 so we can support the band and the theater, but nobody will be turned away for lack of funds. Not from Robin Hood, I mean, come on... who are we, Ticketmaster? But that's a standing rule for Public Domain Xinema, it just happens to thematically work this week. The community is always welcome at Public Domain Xinema. Join us, won't you?
