San Francisco Silent Film Festival's 15th anniversary — July 15–18

Speaking of Louise Brooks (and we were), the San Francisco Silent Film Festival has announced this summer's movie line-up and look who's on the brochure.

Says the press release:
The San Francisco Silent Film Festival, the largest and most important festival of its kind in North America, will celebrate its 15th Anniversary Festival at the majestic silent-era movie palace the Castro Theatre this July.
This year's program is an extraordinary collection of favorites and a few that would be new to me. Häxan: Witchcraft Through the Ages (my own write-up is here) must be a real trip when shared by a big audience of enthusiasts, and oh how I'd love to see that newly restored version of Metropolis.

Yet another reason to visit one of my favorite cities.
