Presented in collaboration with the Astoria International Film Festival. The Liberty Theater is the perfect place for F.W. Murnau’s 1930 classic silent film City Girl, a tale of love between the beautiful Chicago girl Kate and simple farm boy Lem. Set in the wheat fields of Minnesota, the film was actually shot in eastern Oregon. Don’t miss this important part of our state’s history, complete with a new musical score by Oregon composer John Paul which caused a sensation at the Oregon Sesquicentennial Film Festival. John Paul conducts members of the Astoria Festival Orchestra. “The audience went wild: foot-stomping, whistling, cheering, clapping and a hearty chorus of huzzahs greeted the composer after the lights came back on.”  Northwest Reverb
