We are very pleased to announce that the Alloy Orchestra will be returning to Ragtag to perform their score for The Son of the Sheik at 6:30pm on Tuesday, September 22.
Alloy Orchestra is a three man musical ensemble — Terry Donahue on junk percussion, musical saw and accordion, Ken Winokur on percussion and clarinet and Roger Miller (of Mission of Burma!) on keyboard — who write and perform live accompaniment to classic silent films. They've performed at Ragtag a number of times over the years, bringing to life great films such as Buster Keaton, Man with a Movie Camera and Nosferatu.
The Son of the Sheik is a thrilling adventure film from 1926. Heartthrob Rudolph Valentino stars as Ahmed, the son of the Sheik who falls in love with a dancing girl (Vilma Bánky). When Ahmed is made to believe she has betrayed him, he seeks revenge.
