This weekend, don’t miss our third annual silent film/new year’s extravaganza, which goes down this Friday, 30 December (we’re starting the holiday celebrating early this year)

We’ll be screening Charlie Chaplin’s The Kid (1921), followed by Maya Deren and Alexander Hammid’s short experimental film, Meshes of the Afternoon (1943), with a live soundtrack by Shahzad Ismaily

We’re super excited for both films (you can watch the Chaplin trailer here: trust us: tears will roll), and doubly thrilled to have composer and performer Ismaily here from New York (he wrote the score for Frozen River, which won the grand jury prize at Sundance in 2008)

So if you’re in Marfa on Friday, let’s just say: your plans are set

(Also: we’ll also have a little New Year’s Eve gathering at the gallery on Saturday from 4 to 5 pm, with snacks and portraits drawn by locals

True story! Stop by to share the merriment!)

We present “The Kid” and “Meshes of the Afternoon,” with a live score by Shahzad Ismaily, on 30 December 2011 at the Crowley Theater

Doors at 7 pm; show begins at 7:30 pm

Entry is free, and seating is general admission
