Some authors pull material from their own experiences. Others are fascinated by things that are totally foreign to them. If you had to guess, which of those types describes the writer of The Unknown, a 1927 silent film about a carnival performer who throws knives with his feet?
Next week, Randall Avers and Benoît Albert of the guitar duo Les Frères Méduses, and violinist Jennifer Choi — or as they sometimes call each other, Randy, Ben, and Jenny — will perform the guitarists’ original score to The Unknown during a screening at The Nightlight.
That makes up the cinematic portion of Urban Troubadour’s “Dinner and a Movie” program on Monday, March 4 in Akron. A 6:30 pm dinner at Blu Plate with live music by pianist Michael Leamon will be followed by dessert, popcorn, and prosecco at 8:15 at The Nightlight.
