Event Details

To those who only know Marion Davies from her notorious relationship with William Randolph Heart, The Patsy will be a delightful revelation. Davies’ beauty and comedic gifts are showcased in this silent about a dowdy girl smitten with her older sister’s beau. Determined to “get some personality,” she runs, somersaults, and, in one especially funny sequence, imitates film stars from Lillian Gish to Pola Negri to Mae Murray in an effort to attract the film-struck boyfriend. You’ve seen Davis depicted in movies like The Cat’s Meow and The Cradle Will Rock. Now see, and appreciate, the talents of an unjustly forgotten comedienne.

Mechanics' Institute Library & Chess Room

The Mechanics' Institute Library and Chess Room is an historic membership library, cultural event center, and chess club located in the Financial District of San Francisco, California at 57 Post Street. Founded in 1854 to serve the vocational needs of out-of-work gold miners, the Institute today is a favorite of avid readers, writers, downtown employees, students, film lovers, chess players, and the 21st century nomadic worker who needs a quiet place to plug in a laptop and do research.
