Playing in the CCA Cinema

Presented as part of the first annual Public Domain Day at the Center for Contemporary Arts.

June 17: Screening at 11:15am, 5:15pm

US Copyright Law protects creative property for a almost full century, but on January 1, 2024 films from the year 1928 moved into the public domain. CCA celebrates these important pieces of cinematic history all day on Monday June 17th with our first ever Public Domain Day!

LONESOME synopsis:

A buried treasure from Hollywood’s golden age, Lonesome is the creation of a little-known but audacious and one-of-a-kind filmmaker, Paul Fejos (also an explorer, anthropologist, and doctor!). While under contract at Universal, Fejos pulled out all the stops for this lovely, largely silent New York City symphony set in antic Coney Island during the Fourth of July weekend, employing color tinting, superimposition effects, experimental editing, and a roving camera (plus three dialogue scenes, added to satisfy the new craze for talkies).

Two lonely people in the big city meet and enjoy the thrills of an amusement park, only to lose each other in the crowd after spending a great day together. Will they ever see each other again?
