The Thief of Baghdad (1924) is one of the most enchanting of all American silent films, an Arabian adventure featuring the athletic and charismatic Douglas Fairbanks at the height of his stardom. The Music Box Cinema presents a special screening at the Woman’s Club of Hollywood featuring live musical accompaniment by Cliff Retallick on an antique Steinway piano. The evening is the brainchild of the newly formed Retroformat Coalition, which recently gained status as a non-profit after existing as a long-running screening series at the Egyptian. Beer, wine, coffee and snacks will be available on a cash-only basis. Come early to tour the building—a designated historical cultural monument.
The Woman’s Club of Hollywood, 1749 N. La Brea, Hollywood; Sat., July 6, 7:30 p.m.; $15. retroformat.org
