      Cornell Cinema's Elegant Winter Party!

      Willard Straight Theatre Central Campus

      Cornell Cinema’s Elegant Winter Party. Tickets: $50 general ($90 a pair)/$30 students ($50 a pair). Includes screenings of A Trip to the Moon with live music by The Electric Golem; restored color version of A Trip to the Moon (with musical soundtrack by AIR); and The Extraordinary Voyage. (Party starts at 7:30/screenings at 9pm.)

      1902/2011 > USA/France > Directed by Georges Méliès/Serge Bromberg & Eric Lange
      As part of a magical Georges Méliès evening, Cornell Cinema will screen the black & white version of the short A Trip to the Moon (which figures prominently in the new film Hugo), the first outer-space adventure in the history of cinema, with a live, improvised score by The Electric Golem (electronic music by Trevor Pinch & James Spitznagel). It will be followed by the restored hand-painted color version of the legendary film, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011. This version features a new soundtrack by the French band AIR. Then The Extraordinary Voyage by Serge Bromberg & Eric Lange, a one-hour documentary charting the film's amazing story, from its fantastical production in 1902 to the astonishing rediscovery of a nitrate print in color in 1993 to its premiere at Cannes. Interviews with some of contemporary cinema's most imaginative filmmakers, including Michel Gondry, Martin Scorsese, Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) attest to Méliès’ enduring significance. More at bit.ly/s4pnuQ. Tickets available at CornellCinemaTickets.com and starting Monday, February 27 from the Cornell Cinema Office, 104 Willard Straight Hall, from 9am-5pm.
