Cinema L'Amour

Silent Vegas presents Cinema L'Amour, a selection of romantic silent films paired with live cello accompaniment. Cinema L'Amour will explore love in all its sexy and bittersweet splendor.

A curated selection of films will be featured: "Beyond the Rocks", features the Latin Lover himself, Rudolph Valentino, "One Week", a meditation on love, marriage and prefab housing with Buster Keaton, "A Woman", starring Charlie Chaplin as you've never seen HER before along with other short films.

World-class cellist Elizabeth Marshall has arranged live accompaniment featuring modern hit songs as well as familiar pieces from the classical cello repertoire. Her arrangements include songs by Miley Cyrus, Nine Inch Nails, and Marvin Gaye.

"Miley sounds absolutely marvelous on cello," said Marshall, principal sound designer and cellist for Cinema L'Amour. "These silent films offer the visual eye-candy to compliment the musical portraits I've always wanted to play through my instrument."

The films curated by director David Pardue have been hand-selected to reflect love in as many ways as possible.

"These films are about falling in love, falling out of love, lust, and even how gender roles were made to be bendable," said Pardue. "The screen icons we'll see such as Valentino, Keaton, and Gloria Swanson truly were the first larger-than-life romantic heartthrobs. Love is universal, and their images still entice even today."

Cinema L'Amour, the second installment of Silent Vegas' cinematic music series, takes place at Artifice, a cabaret lounge bar featuring boutique wines and signature drinks.

Length: 80 minutes with one 10 minute intermission.
Doors at 5:30PM. Show starts at 6PM.
