To start off the evening we will be joining Opera Theater Oregon for the premiere or their new series OPERA vs. CINEMA! Join us for pre-show sea shanties sung by PDXYAR and the OTO gang. There will also be a pirate costume contest and pirate-themed drink specials such as the Extra Special Booty. Once you are filled with rum and ale and your ears are burning with the singing of 19th century vulgarity the the movie will start.
The film. the classic silent film “The Black Pirate” (the 1926 silent film, starring Douglas Fairbanks) will have the live improvised accompaniment by renowned pianist Doug Schneider. Doug will be improvising from Richard Wagner’s broody opera “Der fliegende Holländer” (The Flying Dutchman).
After the show you can follow the crew down to Maher’s Irish Pub for pirates, shanties and booze!
