Hollywood 1927. George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) is a silent movie superstar. The advent of the talkies will sound the death knell for his career and see him fall into oblivion.

This screening of THE ARTIST will be accompanied by a live score performed by local musician Jonah Pierre for a one-of-a-kind experience in a theatre built the same year in which the film is set.
