In conjunction with City of Cinema: Paris 1850–1907, and in partnership with the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, enjoy a selection of films from the dawn of cinema presented at the Academy Museum. Experience magical fantasies and slapstick comedies during June Family Matinees, and hear from Serge Bromberg of Lobster Films during a special one-man show featuring astounding early film discoveries.
The Academy Museum is the largest institution in the United States devoted to the arts, sciences and artists of moviemaking. The museum advances the understanding, celebration, and preservation of cinema through inclusive and accessible exhibitions, programs, collection and these screenings.
Shorts Program: The Mysterious Screen
This program will feature blocks of short films that showcase the playful variety of genres that existed in cinema’s earliest days: stunning views of early 20th-century Paris, riotous comedies by groundbreaking French filmmakers such as Alice Guy-Blaché, and the delightfully surreal fantasies and trick films of Segundo de Chomón and Gaston Velle, among others.
This film program is presented at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.
