The Wind Staff Pick

Wed., Sept. 29
Cleveland Cinematheque 11610 Euclid Ave., Cleveland Eastern Suburbs

The inaugural National Silent Movie Day takes place today, and the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque will be among the 30 cinemas and performance venues participating. The Cinematheque will screen the 1928 silent feature The Wind starring Lillian Gish. Martin Scorsese recently called this movie "one of the greatest films of the silent era,” noting that “if you’ve never seen a silent film, The Wind is an excellent place to begin." Ohio-born Gish plays a "delicate young woman from Virginia" who travels west to live with relatives on the lonely Texas plains. The Cinematheque will show a vintage 35mm print (with a music track) of The Wind, which is directed by Victor Sjöström, the foremost filmmaker of the Swedish silent cinema, at 7 tonight. Tickets cost $13, or $10 for Cinematheque members, CIA and CSU I.D. holders, and those age 25 and under. Face masks are required for all moviegoers. Free parking for filmgoers is available in Lot 73 and in the Institute’s annex lot, both off E. 117th St. south of Euclid Ave. 216-421-7450
