Passion of Joan of Arc at Palmdale Playhouse


Scheduled Friday, Sept. 29

The Palmdale Playhouse will present the critically acclaimed 1928 silent film “The Passion of Joan of Arc” on Friday, Sept. 29 at 8 pm in honor of National Silent Film Day.

This new restoration of the Carl Dreyer silent classic is brought to life with a beautiful, reimagined modern score by composer and keyboardist George Sarah combining electronic music, the West Coast Classical String Quartet and Sunday Night Singers Choir to create a profound experience for all to enjoy.

Silent films are rarely presented on a big screen with a live musical accompaniment that combines electronic synths and rhythms with a string ensemble and choir. This event promises to be a landmark of local cinema, especially for its unforgettable performance by Renee Maria Falconetti as Joan. With a 98% Rotten Tomatoes rating and hailed as one of the greatest and most important films of all time by over 100 critics, including the late Roger Ebert.
