Cecil B. DeMille’s moving story of the Christ has been exhibited throughout the world since its 1927 release. “So reverential is the spirit of . . . DeMille’s ambitious pictorial transcription of the life of Jesus of Nazareth, the Man,” wrote the New York Times, “that during its initial screening . . . hardly a whispered word was uttered among the audience. . . . It is, in fact, the most impressive of all motion pictures.” We are showing the seldom-seen original full-length version with the added dimension of live organ accompaniment by virtuoso Blaine Gale.
