Description

ROOFTOP CINÉ-CONCERT SERIES

7PM: Rooftop opens for a welcome drink.

8PM: Silent movie accompanied by live music upon sunset.


FILM: SHOW PEOPLE

Directed by: King Vidor, 1928, 79min

All Peggy Pepper (Marion Davies) wants in life is to be a great dramatic actress. But when rowdy slapstick comic Billy Boyle (William Haynes) gives Peggy her big break, she puts her dreams on hold and becomes America’s comedy queen. So when prestigious High Arts Studio offers her the chance to play serious roles and Peggy gets a swelled head, it’s up to Billy to burst her bubble and bring Peggy down to earth.


LIVE MUSIC: Karel Růžička (saxophone) & friends


Rooftop Ciné-Concert Series:

Laugh out loud with the greatest silent comedians of all time! The comedic mastery of Buster Keaton, Marion Davies, and Harold Lloyd is eternal and continues to inspire awe. Let your jaws drop and roar with laughter as live musicians underscore the perfectly executed gags, astonishing stunts, and facial clowning. Indulge in silent comedies that won’t make you silent with the New York skyline and see where the night takes you – are you ready to laugh?


Please note: In the event of rain, the screenings will take place in the Bohemian National Hall.

Organized in collaboration with BBLA.
