Once a year, the most exciting filmgoing experience in Boston isn’t at a movie theater. It’s the New England Conservatory’s annual film noir concert, at Jordan Hall. The series celebrates its 15th anniversary with this year’s screening. Fritz Lang’s “Dr. Mabuse: The Gambler and Inferno” (1922). screens on Feb. 19 at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free, but a ticket is required.
Produced by the NEC faculty members Ran Blake and Aaron Hartley, the series screens scenes from one or more classic films, accompanied by original music composed and performed by NEC students and faculty.
This year’s 30 to 40 participants span a dizzying array of genres...“We have everything from rap to avant-garde to gospel.”
