San Francisco Silent Film Festival presents NAPOLEON March 24, 25, 31, April 1 | Paramount Theatre, Oakland

"A MAJOR EVENT! Don't wait for this to come to a theater near you - getting Gance's magnum opus up on a screen is a herculean task!" - Martin Scorsese, Vanity Fair (March 2012)

Abel Gance's epic NAPOLEON is the Holy Grail of silent masterpieces. In the early 1980s, Francis Ford Coppola toured a 4-hour road show version that many still consider their most unforgettable movie experience ever. Now, thirty-one years later, the San Francisco Silent Film Festival is finally presenting legendary film historian Kevin Brownlow's complete 5 1/2 hour restoration in the United States, along with the American premiere of a magnificent score by Carl Davis, at the Art Deco Paramount Theatre in Oakland. Mr. Davis will conduct a 48-piece orchestra for these screenings, which also feature the original 3-screen "Polyvision" finale. Due to the technical challenges, expense, and complicated rights issues involved, no screenings are planned for any other American city. This is your chance, so grab it now!
