Mostly Lost: History of 3D Cinema at State Theatre of Culpeper

History of 3D Cinema told as never before, in a show presented by Serge Bromberg. From the first experiments to the commercial world, with live piano for silent films, he will reveal amazing stories, surprises, and show films one would never have expected to exist. You won’t believe your eyes. From the entrance of a train by Louis Lumière to Russian films, from the early days of cinema to the latest experiments, the story of 3D is a thrilling adventure that has never been told before. At least like this! Film clips will be shown and the required glasses will be provided. Before the 3D extravaganza, Eric Grayson will present a newly preserved chapter of King of the Kongo. The screening costs $10 per person for non-Mostly Lost 4 attendees and is open to the public.

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…
