October 5th Tentative Deadline to Register & Pay for Discounted Tickets!

This Event Has Been Rescheduled from April 29th to November 11th Due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus

MAX has negotiated a special discounted price of $23 per person for the Opening Night of the San Francisco Silent Film Festival (SFSFF), featuring Erich von Stroheim's brilliant film Foolish Wives.

The Wednesday November 11th showing at the Castro Theatre will be the premiere of a restoration completed in collaboration with New York's Museum of Modern Art.  The film will be accompanied by maestro Timothy Brock, conducting members of the Oakland Symphony performing his SFSFF-commissioned score.

Foolish Wives stars actor/writer/director Erich Von Stroheim as a fraudulent count, living in a state of perpetual depravity in a huge Monte Carlo mansion.  He supports himself by extorting huge sums of money from silly married ladies who are dumb enough to fall for his romantic charms.  Von Stroheim's attempted seduction of the foolish wife of an American financier is thwarted at every turn, and the count ultimately gets his comeuppance.

Join us for this unforgettable experience!

To get the discount and in order to sit together as a MAX group, you must register and pay on this page by clicking REGISTER on the left.

The tentative deadline to register and pay for this discounted price is Monday October 5th!  After that date, ticket prices will go up, and also, there is no guarantee of sitting together as a group.

Our MAX group also will plan to go out to dinner together before the film.  Your event champion, Bruce Cecil, will send out more specific information to all who register and pay.

Special Note: The show time of 7:00pm is tentative and will be updated when finalized.
