Public Domain Xinema presents...THE THIEF OF BAGDAD

Showtimes

Get ready for the wonder and spectacle of the majestic 1924 silent classic, The Thief of Bagdad (1924) directed by the legendary Raoul Walsh and starring the immortal Douglas Fairbanks! It's a lush and gorgeously filmed fantasy adventure that stretched the limits of its era's technological capabilities. The special effects and action in this film still look amazing nearly 95 years later.

As if that weren't great enough, this silent masterpiece will be accompanied by the amazing musical team, Sonochromatic, who will be playing an all new score to the film right in the theater! Did we mention it's a donation based screening? because it is. Bring nothing or something, just come! The suggested donation is $5-$8, but we think after you hear 5 minutes of Sonochromatic playing to the film, you'll be interrupting them, asking who to make the checks out to.

Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity for a classic silent film experience.
