The Cleveland Institute of Art Year-end Wrap Up  
Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque
It's been a wonderful year!

Although we're showing no films until Friday, January 6, 2012, we're so addicted to sending these weekly emails that we couldn't let a week go by without one. (But no email next week -- we promise!) However, there are three things we'd like to do.
     First of all, we want to thank you for your support during 2011. Our attendace held steady through this calendar year and membership sales increased dramatically -- no small feat in these economically challenging times.
     Secondly, we want to wish you a joyous and relaxing holiday season in which you can reconnect with the people who matter in your lives (and who who may not share your filmgoing obsession). Treat them to dinner without a movie.
     Finally, we want to ask you again to consider making a year-end gift to the Cinematheque. You're already giving to everybody else, and your credit card debt has already ballooned, so what's going a little further in the hole if it means helping a needy non-profit that you value? It's easy to donate and we're easy to please. We're very happy even with small gifts. Just click here and designate your contribution for the Cinematheque. Thank you!
Cinematheque rings in 2012 with silent films, first-run movies, Don Hertzfeldt & more!

“Artists of the Silent Screen,” a film series showcasing some of the greatest talents of the silent era, will run from January 7 through February 26 at the Cinematheque. Among the 14 short and feature-length films to be shown are works directed by D.W. Griffith, Georges Méliès, Erich von Stroheim, Sergei Eisenstein, and Fritz Lang, and starring such luminaries as Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Gloria Swanson (pictured above), John Gilbert, and Lillian Gish.
     “Silent films are some of the greatest glories of world cinema,” says Cinematheque Director John Ewing. “With the new silent film THE ARTIST winning universal acclaim, the time seemed right to revive some of the authentic silent masterpieces from the first three decades of the last century.”
     All of the movies will be shown in film prints with live or recorded music. Joseph Rubin, silent film musician and founder of the Lillian and Dorothy Gish Film Festival, will provide live piano accompaniment to Griffith’s INTOLERANCE on Saturday, January 7 – the series’ opening night presentation.
     In addition to silent movies, in January and February the Cinematheque will present the exclusive Cleveland showings of a wide variety of new, first-run films from around the world (among them LE HAVRE, THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE 1967-1975, PIANOMANIA, and YOUNG GOETHE IN LOVE), as well as non-silent classics (THE MIRROR, WILD STYLE, WOMEN IN LOVE, et al.) and assorted second-run films (PASSIONE, THE MILL AND THE CROSS, MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE, et al.). Oscar-nominated animator Don Hertzfeldt will appear in person on Friday, February 24. To see the complete two-month schedule, click here.
