Free for All: Art Without a Price Tag: Films by George Méliès, Earth Day Houston and Easter

Come Friday night, we'll be looking up at the stars -- not the ones in the skies, mind you. The ones on screen at Houston Public Media Silent Film Concert: Films by George Méliès. Live music by Loreta Kovacic accompanies several short films by renowned French filmmaker George Méliès, the most famous of which are the 1902 A Trip to the Moon and 1904 The Impossible Voyage. Méliès was an illusionist before he became a filmmaker, which accounts for much of his magical style. He's the subject of the current hit Hugo (Ben Kingsley plays Méliès). Sneak a peek at A Trip to the Moon here.

See Houston Public Media Silent Film Concert: Films by George Méliès on at 8:30 p.m. on Friday at Discovery Green, 1500 McKinney. For information, visit www. discoverygreen.com or call 713- 400-7336.
