Boston area fans: the Somerville Theatre is running 'So This Is Paris' (1926) in 35mm on Sunday, June 18 at 2 p.m. as part of its monthly "Silents, Please!" series, with live accompaniment by yours truly. More info at http://www.somervilletheatre.com.

And Friday, June 16 marks the start of a summer-long Lubitsch retrospective at the Harvard Film Archive in which they're showing pretty much everything Lubitsch ever did. Screenings run through Sept. 1; a complete schedule is online at http://hcl.harvard.edu/hfa/films/2017junaug/lubitsch.html

For the HFA series, I'm doing music for six separate programs of Lubitsch silents, many of them from his Berlin years and rarely screened anywhere. (And which I've never seen!) First up is a double bill of 'Shoe Palace Pinkus' (1916) and 'Meyer From Berlin' (1919) on Sunday, June 18 at 7 p.m.—yes, the same day as 'So This Is Paris' at the Somerville. So quite a full day of Lubitsch!

Other programs of Lubitsch silents in the HFA series will be accompanied by Martin Marks and Robert Humphreville.
