Sunrise:A Song for Two Humans

Sunrise:A Song for Two Humans

Dear Film Lovers,

We are excited to bring the Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra back to Lawrence to perform their score for the 1927 silent cinema masterpiece, Sunrise by F. W. Murnau. 

Swarthout Recital Hall recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation making it a comfortable, intimate, acoustically ideal setting to watch, and more importantly to listen to one of today’s best silent film ensembles. In response to the pandemic, the theater’s HVAC systems now have the highest quality air filtration system including both HEPA and MERV filters. Free parking is available in lots west of Murphy Hall on the KU campus. Masks for those attending will be required.

View one of the best films ever made on the big screen, with music
performed by one of the best silent film musical ensembles, in one of the
premier settings in the Midwest for just ($10 for KU students) $15.  This event is co-sponsored by the KU School of Music, the Kansas Silent Film Festival and Footprints. 

Tickets available at the door.
