The Norman Studios Silent Film Museum will be concluding its month-long Silent Sundays by showing the 1926 classic film "Faust."
The film, which was directed by Friedrich Wilhelm Murnau, will be shown on Oct. 20 at 4 p.m. at the Hotel Indigo Jacksonville - Deerwood Park located at 9840 Tapestry Park Circle. Tickets for the event are $5.
"Faust" is a drama that revolves around a deal with the devil. In the film, God and Satan are at war over Earth and they decided to settle things by making a wager on the soul of Faust, a learned and prayerful alchemist.
The musical accompaniment for the film will be provided by Jacksonville University's Tony Steve and the Silver Synchro Sounds.
All proceeds from Silent Sundays support efforts of the Norman Studios Silent Film Museum. Norman Studios is a non-profit organization aimed at enhancing the public's knowledge of Northeast Florida's early film industry and preserving and restoring Jacksonville's only remaining silent film studio.
The Norman Studios was among the nation's first to produce films starring all African American casts. Click here, for more information about Norman Studios.
