Film Classics in 35mm! Black History Month


United States | 1929 | King Vidor


The first Hollywood film with an all-black cast “has fair claim to being the first masterpiece of the sound era” (Macmillan Dictionary of Films and Filmmakers). Director King Vidor, who grew up in Texas, worked without a salary to bring his long-cherished tale of southern black folk (and their music and culture) to the screen, shooting the movie in Tennessee and Arkansas. Despite Vidor’s good intentions and the work’s many commendable attributes (performances, songs, cinematography), this account of a sharecropper’s ill-advised infatuation with a young temptress teems with regrettable African American stereotypes. Selected for the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry in 2008. 106 min.

Special admission $11; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 & under $8. No passes, twofers, or radio winners.
