The Scarlet Empress

When: Sat., Jan. 23 2016

Way back in the 18th century, Catherine Great rose from German princess to empress of Russia. The Scarlet Empress, one of seven Marlene Dietrich/Josef von Sternberg collaborations, turns Catherine's story into a visual orgy, as critic Leonard Maltin once put it. Today at 5 p.m. and tomorrow at 8:30 p.m., the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque shows 35 mm print film straight outta the Universal Pictures vault. Tickets cost $10. (Niesel)
