Ciné-Concert Evening: A Unique Cinematic Experience Presented by The Film Society of Montreal

The Cinéclub de Montréal / The Film Society of Montreal presents its bi-annual Ciné-Concert evening, one of the most anticipated cinematic events of the season. This evening is intended for cinephiles and art enthusiasts who wish to experience a complete artistic experience.
The Ciné-Concert evening is an exceptional event that offers a complete program with two distinct screenings on the same evening. The works are selected by the organization dedicated to the conservation and preservation of archival works and cinematographic art. The event will take place on Saturday, May 20, 2023.
The first screening will begin at 6:00 pm with the screening of Buster Keaton's comic masterpiece THE GENERAL (1926), accompanied by a live performance of piano, clarinet, and percussion (with a real train bell!). The evening will be enhanced by a silent short film by Buster Keaton. The musical performances will be provided by Andrei Castanon on piano, Parker Bert on percussion, and Beth McKenna on wind instruments.
The second screening, on the other hand, will begin at 9:30 pm with the screening of Dziga Vertov's extraordinary surrealist cinema masterpiece MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA (1929), accompanied by an original music performed live by Morgane Paige Melbourne on piano, Parker Bert on percussion, and Ivan Fabara on cello. This film will be preceded by a surrealist and comical science-fiction film directed in France by René Clair, as well as a silent short film surprise from the silent era, rarely projected elsewhere.
Tickets for the event are available on the organization's website as well as at the church box office from 5:00 pm on the day of the event. Snacks and drinks will be available to the public. (The Anglican Church of St-Georges is located at 1001 av. des Canadiens-de-Montréal (Lucien l'Allier or Bonaventure metro stations. Near the Bell Centre))
