On Saturday, October 5, the brilliant three-man ensemble Alloy Orchestra will return to Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater for a live musical performance set to the classic 1924 silent drama HE WHO GETS SLAPPED. Advance tickets for the special event are on sale now at Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater (1340 Mike Fahey St.) and online at www.filmstreams.org. Tickets are $12 general, $10 for students, seniors, teachers and military, and $8 for Film Streams Members. Showtime is 7 p.m. Formed in Boston in 1990, the Alloy Orchestra (Roger Miller, Ken Winokur and Terry Donahue) began their love affair with silent films with an original score for METROPOLIS in 1991. In the years since, they have written original scores for more than 28 feature-length film presentations and performed more than a thousand shows around the world. Working with an outrageous assemblage of peculiar objects, the group’s members employ instruments ranging from the expected (clarinet, keyboards) to the not-so-much (“junk”). Their October 5 performance to HE WHO GETS SLAPPED will be Alloy’s fourth visit to Film Streams’ Ruth Sokolof Theater. Previous performances include Fritz Lang’s METROPOLIS in 2010, a collection of the group’s favorite silent-era short films, in 2011, and THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA in 2012. Based on a Russian play, HE WHO GETS SLAPPED stars Lon Chaney, the man of a thousand faces, as brilliant scientist Paul Beaumont. When his benefactor, the evil baron, steals his research – and his wife – Beaumont flees, resurfacing as a circus clown who relives the baron’s betrayal every night through his act. Just when Beaumont finds love again, his nemesis reappears.
