If you haven’t been introduced to Serge Bromberg’s “Retour de Flamme” you’ve been missing out on an extraordinary event. Here is your chance THIS WEEKEND (Saturday, July 3rd and Sunday, July 4th) to celebrate 20 years of Lobster Film at two FREE programs held at the Luxembourg Gardens at 10 pm.
Saturday night (10 pm) will feature Jacques Feyder’s recently restored CRAINQUEBILLE, a 1922 silent film accompanied by the music of Antonio Coppolo performed by l’Octuour de France orchestra.
On Sunday night (also at 10 pm)the inimitable Serge Bromberg shares his passion for silent cinema. His enthusiasm for preserving these gems of nitrate is contagious.
IF YOU ARE IN PARIS, DON’T MISS THIS EVENT.
Although the event is free, be sure to use the entrance located at the corner of Rue Vaugirard and Rue Medicis (which is on the Senate side of the garden (Metro: Odeon or RER Luxembourg).
If you are so unlucky as not to be in Paris right now, like me, the next best thing you can do is ask to be put on the Lobster Film mailing list:
