The CineClub is presenting biweekly screenings at the Crowley Arts Centre here in Montreal every other Sunday. This week the screening will be Sunrise.
A married farmer falls under the spell of an urban siren who convinces him to drown his wife. Murnau’s first American film has been hailed as “the last high peak of German silent cinema.” In the 1950s, the French magazine Cahiers du Cinema named Sunrise as the “greatest film ever made.” In various international polls, Sunrise features prominently among the best and most significant films ever made. For your unique pleasure, this silent-era masterpiece will be accompanied by live music. Pianist: Simon Sloutsker.
If you have always wanted to visit the new space, this is your best chance! As you will see, experiencing this film in the same way that audiences did in 1927 will have you talking about it for weeks and it’s certainly not something you can duplicate at home. So pay them a visit and have a great night at the movies! (Made even greater because one of their volunteers has promised to bake us all yummy cupcakes!)

Admission: 8$, 6$ (étudiants/students & 65+)
Café, thé et eau de source offert gratuitement!
With complementary coffee, tea and spring water!
