In 1912, when Sir Arthur Conan Doyle published his novel, THE LOST WORLD, movies were still in their infancy and technology wasn’t available to do the fantastic story justice, but by 1925 Willis O’Brien had begun to perfect stop motion, allowing him and his small team to bring these prehistoric creatures to life. THE LOST WORLD created a sensation then, and remains a cinematic milestone today.
The Alex Film Society’s 35 mm print of THE LOST WORLD is a fully restored version from George Eastman House. Famed composer and pianist, Alexander Rannie will accompany the film with the musical score that was written for the original release.
Also on the bill will be BED TIME (1923), AN “Out Of The Inkwell” silent cartoon featuring Koko the Clown, produced by Max Fleischer and directed by Dave Fleischer. This brand new 35 mm print has been completely by the UCLA Film & Television Archive with funds from ASIFA-Hollywood.
Tickets can be purchased online. Information on how to receive a discount on admission will be sent to members of ASIFA-Hollywood via email.
