Gorgeous New Digitally Restored Print! Los Angeles Premiere! THE LOVES OF PHARAOH, 1922, 100 min. In Ernst Lubitsch’s last large-scale German production prior to his career in Hollywood, Emil Jannings plays Egyptian pharaoh Amenes, who must marry the daughter of the Ethiopian king (Paul Wegener) to prevent war. Things get complicated when the pharaoh's adviser Ramphis (Harry Liedtke) sets his eye on the object of Amenes' affection, Theonis (Dagny Servaes). For decades available only in fragments all over the European continent, this landmark film has been beautifully digitally restored and will be accompanied by its original symphonic orchestral score. Free to Cinematheque members and a guest. Join us in the Egyptian lobby at 6:30 PM for celebratory cake in honor of the American Cinematheque’s 30th birthday and the Egyptian Theatre’s 89th birthday.
