prepping for Die Nibelungen parts 1 & 2
Friday I play for Destiny at the Burns as part of the Lang series there. Will have to look at that DVD soon. They've also booked me and Bruce Lawton for a program of Chaplin shorts on Dec 30th. We've done a silent comedy program for them every late Dec since they opened. Those shows are always fun and we get a lot of families and seniors as well as their usual film crowd.
Saturday at MoMA is Jeckyll & Hyde and The Green Goddess, which I'll do (both) on piano. Sunday is opening day at the Silent Clowns series, showing Lloyd's Grandma's Boy – my print (hey, I better dig that out!), a nice 16mm which Bruce filled out with some footage from another print that was missing in mine. Making some progress on dealing with the fact that the N-YHS auditorium side door is out of commission because of renovations to the museum, and that people will be entering in the back door (which lets light onto the screen). We should have blackout curtains hung by our second show, in Oct, unless something amazing happens in next coupla days. The N-YHS staff have been great about helping us with this.
See you at the silents!
