An Epic Tale

When: Fri., Aug. 8 2014

An epic 1924 film about the Nordic legend that inspired Wagner’s equally epic Ring Cycle, Fritz Lang’s Die Nibelungen has just received a digital restoration and the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque (who else?) has managed to get a copy. Lang co-wrote the silent film with his wife and the two focused the story on the film’s hero as he attempts to slay a dragon and win the hand of a princess. The film is divided into two parts. Part one screens tonight at 7 and the second part, subtitled Kriemhild’s Revenge, shows tomorrow night at 6:45. Tickets are $9 or $15 for both. (Niesel)
