The talented musicians of Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra made their Rafael debut (and first Bay Area appearance) exactly 20 years ago, the very week the restored theater reopened in April 1999. Based in Louisville, Colorado, director Rodney Sauer compiles and arranges his scores from authentic music of the period. The New York Times wrote about their work: “The results are often breathtakingly beautiful and always in the strict service of the film on the screen.”
Following our screening, Sauer will answer questions about his work. Program approximately 90 min.
