Sunday at the Silent Movie Theatre: The Bear with LIVE SCORE by No Age

On Sunday at the Silent Movie Theatre on Melrose and Fairfax is screening the movie The Bear. No Age will be performing a live, original score over the "near-wordless" movie. It should be quite an experience, and the Theatre knows it has something big on its hands -- there's both an 8pm and 10:30pm screening.

From the Silent Movie Theatre's description:

L.A.-based, world-renowned experimental noise pop duo No Age will appear live at the Cinefamily to perform their brand-new score for Jean-Jacques Annaud's majestic 1988 film The Bear, a near-wordless cinematic expedition deep into the savagery and tenderness of the animal kingdom. Told from the titular species' point of view, The Bear chronicles the journey of an orphan bear cub and a lone adult bear banding together to avoid two human hunters. Along the way, director Annaud has great fun with the storytelling possibilities from a non-human perspective, including dream sequences and an unforgettable psychdelic mushroom bear trip! With nearly no (human) dialogue, the film easily lends itself to live scoring, and No Age drummer Dean Spunt and guitarist Randy Randall have crafted a shimmering 90-minute set of sonic blasts and delicate textures that perfectly complement the peculiar, touching and altogether unique experience that is The Bear.

See you Sunday at 8. Here's the trailer for "The Bear:"
