A Live Movie-concert based on the cinematographic works of the legendary, groundbreaking and imaginative French filmmaker Georges Méliès. If you have seen the Academy Award winning movie "Hugo," then you know a little bit about Melies and the beauty of his creation. For this performnce, French composer Jean-François Alcoléa has written and performs a mesmerizing and magical score for each of the 11 classic films presented.
The poetic and playful universe of Georges Méliès was nearly lost to history, and public showings of his work are rare. Old Town Theatre was chosen as one of only nine theatres to host this performance in the U.S. on its first tour of North America. and we are proud to present for our patrons a performance that is both breathtaking and sublime in its scope.
Do NOT miss this performance. You will NEVER forget it, and you may never have this chance again.
