Auteurist series at MoMA moves in the 1920s

Well, we're out of the woods, now (meaning films of the 'teens), and the pictures just get better and better every week. The series screens on Wed/Thur/Fri at 1:30pm; the dates below reflect the fact that I only play on Weds and Thurs. In 2010 I will use the Miditzer for accompaniment more, as by 1920 the theatre organ and orchestra were the more prevalent sounds heard in picture houses. Film scheduled for May will be posted later...
