SOLD OUT– Hitchcock’s Blackmail with a live accompaniment 

September 29 at 7 pm
Cost: $16

Did you know that an estimated 80% of all American silent feature films produced between 1890 and 1930 are now considered “lost” forever?

The Pittsburgh Silent Film Society and Row House Cinema join forces September 29 to mark the first National Silent Movie Day — an event taking place around the country to celebrate silent film history and raise awareness about the race to preserve surviving silent films

To celebrate, we’re doing a screening of Hitchcock’s Blackmail with a live piano accompaniment!

The Pittsburgh screening, which will use the British Film Institute’s restoration from the original camera negative, features auteur Alfred Hitchcock’s silent masterwork Blackmail (1929) – one of the best British films, if not the best, of the late 1920s.

Tom Roberts (former piano player for Leon Redbone and composer and performer of the music for the soundtrack of Martin Scorsese’s film The Aviator) will accompany the film live on piano. Dr. Adam Hart, film scholar and author of Monstrous Forms, will provide a short introduction.
