Academy Celebrates Films From 1911 With
Live Music Accompaniment By Michael Mortilla
Includes Mary Pickford & Owen Moore In The Dream

Mary Pickford and Owen Moore The Dream
For the ninth consecutive year The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Academy will present an evening of films from 100 years earlier and will celebrate the year 1911 and its developmental contributions to motion pictures with a program of selected films. A Century Ago: The Films of 1911, Heroes and Heroines will be presented on Monday, November 7, at 7:30 p.m. at the Academy's Linwood Dunn Theater in Hollywood.

Presented on a 1909 hand-cranked Power's Model 6 Cameragraph motion picture machine, the films will be screened with live musical accompaniment by Michael Mortilla. The program will spotlight several of the newly anointed star personalities of the screen whose emergence allowed studios and filmmakers to distinguish and brand their one-reel productions, which were shot in variety of locations.

A Century Ago: The Films of 1911 will include Mary Pickford in Thomas Ince's IMP film The Dream; G.M. Anderson in Essanay's Broncho Billy's Christmas Dinner; John Bunny and Flora Finch in Vitagraph's Her Crowning Glory; Kathlyn Williams in the Selig Company's Lost in the Jungle; Winsor McCay's first animated film from Vitagraph (Winsor McCay); and a newly preserved print of the Star Film Company's Billy and His Pal. Drawn from the collections of the Academy Film Archive, the British Film Institute, the Library of Congress, the Nederlands Filmmuseum and the UCLA Film & Television Archive, most prints will be in 35mm

Tickets for "A Century Ago: The Films of 1911" are $5 for the general public and $3 for Academy members and students with a valid ID. They may be purchased online at, in person at the Academy box office, or by mail. The Linwood Dunn Theater is located at the Academy's Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study, 1313 Vine Street in Hollywood. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. All seating is unreserved.
