The Thief of Bagdad

2K Digital Restoration
(Raoul Walsh, 1924)


Many classic films are just as powerful today as when they were first released. We add such films from many genres to our schedule throughout the season. Many are shown on the occasion of their rereleases, in fresh, new or restored prints.

The ever-iconic The Thief of Bagdad shows us a dapper Douglas Fairbanks leaping, swinging, and riding his magic carpet through a maze of wondrous (and pre-digital) sets by William Cameron Menzies. One of the most thrilling epics of the silent era, featuring a recorded score by Carl Davis (Napoleon). (149 mins., 2K DCP)
