Mostly Lost: Sherlock Holmes (1916) at The State Theatre of Culpeper

“Sherlock Holmes” (1916) with musical accompaniment by Philip Carli.
This is the east coast premiere of a long lost treasure, Sherlock Holmes. Originally released on May 15, 1916 by the Essanay Film company, this film stars William Gillette, the man who created and established himself as the world’s foremost interpreter of Holmes on stage. Following its initial release the film faded from view and in modern times had been counted among the “lost” films of the silent era. All this changed last year when a complete dupe negative of the French edition of the film was identified in the vaults of the Cinematheque Française. Since that monumental discovery, the Cinematheque and the San Francisco Silent Film Festival have collaborated on a complete restoration of the historic film.
Come see the very first cinematic meeting of the great detective and Moriarty, the Emperor of Crime. Will Holmes rescue Alice Faulkner from the clutches of the scheming Larrabees? Can Watson see through the deceptions of his mysterious visitors? Why does Holmes willingly enter the trap of the Stepney Gas Chamber? There is only one way to find out…
