The Minneapolis Institute of Arts is jumping in on the pirate craze by showing the 1926 classic film, 'The Black Pirate', starring Douglas Fairbanks. 'The Black Pirate' is the story of a man of noble blood who pretends to be a pirate to avenge the blood of his dying father. It has all the sword swashbuckling scenes, the true pirate shirt, the damsel in distress, patch over the eye, peg leg and parrot that all became the standard of pirate movies to follow.
Tickets are $10 or $5 for MIA members. There is only one showtime and that is Thursday, June 14, at 6-7:30 p.m. The Minneapolis Institute of Arts is located at 2400 Third Ave. S., Minneapolis. Call 612-870-6323 for more information or to reserve tickets.
Local musician will be accompanying this presentation and has created an original score for this silent film. Daniel Lloyd is also the worship leader at St. Timothy's Lutheran Church in Columbia Heights. Each Sunday morning at 9;30 a.m. you can hear him present a wide range of classic pieces to improvisations on hymns.
