30 minutes allocated for Duck Soup?

Must look into this!  MOMI screenings are back at the actual museum, right?

A bit on topic and then a bit more off topic

http://www.movingimage.us/films/2011/05/13/detail/terrence-malick/

MOMI will have a weekend of T Malick. Any of his films that you would recommend more than others?

Note also the expansion has a main theater, but also a 2nd smaller one geared more towards family fare.

August 24: Silent Film Festival
Backyard Band/with presents a night of silent films, live music and homemade pies (yes, you can have all three at the same time)! Enjoy a specially curated, Socrates Sculpture Park-themed evening of classic and contemporary silent films set to original, live scores by local musicians.

We encourage homemade pies to be baked and consumed liberally. Together, these ingredients create an evening of community dialogue, thought-provoking culture and a truly social media.

Quote

Organized by consulting curator Richard Koszarski, author of Hollywood on the Hudson
One hundred years ago, New York was the center of the American movie business. The technology may have been invented by Thomas Edison in West Orange but within a few years most of the new industry’s operations had moved to Manhattan, where talent, finance, and the roots of the nation’s theatrical and vaudeville circuits all came together. As D. W. Griffith said years later, this was where “the money and the brains were.”
 
 
 
Making Movies in New York: 1911 is the first installment of an annual look at our local film industry a century ago. While New York may not always be the subject, its cosmopolitan sensibility, even when producing Civil War epics or one-reel adaptations of Dickens or Ibsen, is never far from the surface.
 

 Screening
The Big City Part of Making Movies in New York: 1911
Saturday, June 4, 3:00 p.m.    Introduced by Richard Koszarski
Live music by Donald Sosin  Life in the city is one great struggle. Millions come here in search of riches, romance, or simple dignity. But where are the rules? (Program approximately 80 mins.)

Little Old New York
35mm print courtesy of Library of Congress. Thanhouser Studio. With Ed Genung and Marguerite Snow. Seduced by the Police Gazette, a country boy comes to the big city and gets more than he bargained for.    ...

This is a best of youtube for me.
Some faves of the year: Moneyball, Rango, the Artist, Hugo, ...

List of Movies (alphabetical):
Prologue: "Sunset Blvd." (1950)
Music (in order):
"Ceremony" by New Order
"Ma L'amore No" by Ennio Morricone
"Ghost of Love" by David Lynch
"Raise Your Weapon (Madeon Remix)" by Deadmau5
This video is an attempt to use the remarkably diverse selection of films released over the course of a year's time to construct a broad narrative encompassing the many different elements that comprise the cinematic medium we love so dearly.

A special effects special event.
Hugo starts as a bit of a lame not so interesting story and then becomes something much more.
