Plein Air Cinema Series: The Adventures of Prince Achmed

Since the dawn of moving pictures, adults and children alike have enjoyed the infinite possibilities animated films can provide in telling a story. This summer, GFS brings you four unique cinematic experiences, each of which uses true craftsmanship, transcending the realms of art and of animation to ignite your imagination.

A film known to be the oldest surviving animated feature, this 1926 silent German cinematic masterpiece uses a captivating orchestral score and “silhouette” animation in a fairytale exploring stories from the fabled Arabian Nights. Director Lotte Reiniger’s inventive technique employs cutouts made from cardboard and thin sheets of lead, posed in front of illuminated sheets of glass and manipulated to create a type of shadow animation never seen before.

Make a night of it! Join us for dinner at our pop-up, Café Terrace at Night! On this evening, we celebrate the Cuisine of South East France (Lyon, Marseille). Seatings at 5:30 PM and 6:30 PM; reservations required and can be made by calling 609.584.7800.

Film begins at sundown.
