Outside the Sheridan Opera House during the Telluride Film Festival

In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Telluride Film Festival and the 100th anniversary of the fest's historic Sheridan Opera House theater, the festival will present "A Night at the Movies: 1913" on August 27. The program includes 90 minutes of short films covering a range of genres (such as a thriller, a newsreel and a slapstick and romantic comedy), including a featured drama directed by D.W. Griffith and starring Lillian Gish -- who originally appeared on the Opera House stage.

All films will have live piano accompaniment by renowned guest Rodney Sauer.

Tickets are $25 for general admission, and go on sale August 16 at noon; all proceeds benefit the Sheridan's campaign to renovate its entryway.
