THE MOVING IMAGE

Flat Earth Society performs with Lubitsch's THE OYSTER PRINCESS

ACCLAIMED BELGIAN BIG BAND
‘FLAT EARTH SOCIETY’ ACCOMPANIES
ERNST LUBITSCH’S STYLISH 1919 COMEDY
THE OYSTER PRINCESS 

Friday, May 20, 2011, 8:00 p.m.
The celebrated Belgian 15-piece big band Flat Earth Society, known throughout Europe for their raucously playful jazz style, will perform an original score for Ernst Lubitsch’s 1919 film comedy, The Oyster Princess, at Museum of the Moving Image. The event on Friday, May 20, 2011, at 8:00 p.m., in the Museum’s beautiful new 267-seat film theater, marks the U. S. premiere of the performance, which has been seen at major festivals in Europe and Central America.  The group will also present excerpts from their latest project, Hearsee, an ever-mutating audiovisual montage of composed and improvised music accompanying archival film clips.

Tickets are $15 / $10 for Museum members and free for Silver Screen members and above. Order tickets online at http://movingimage.us or by calling 718 777 6800.
