SLIFF: George Melies Program

With live musical accompaniment by the Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra

Regular ticket price of $12
When our spectacular program of Georges Méliès shorts sold out at the Classic French Film Festival this summer, the folks who were turned away at the door begged for a return engagement. SLIFF is pleased to offer a reprise of the program on both sides of the Mississippi River – on Nov. 9 at Webster and on Nov. 10 at the Wildey. The program includes the restored “A Trip to the Moon” and a docudrama on the filmmaker, but the highlight of the event is a generous sampling of Méliès shorts with original musical accompaniment by St. Louis’ Rats & People Motion Picture Orchestra.
