More than a movie-concert, Right in the Eye is an imaginative, playful rendition of the works of Georges Méliès, a pioneer of cinema widely regarded as the inventor of special effects in movies. His films were among the first to use techniques such as stop-motion, slow-motion and double exposure.

Right in the Eye is a multi-sensory experience, enhanced with scenery and lighting to create the sense that you are in the movie and includes music to spark your imagination. The performance starts at 7 p.m. in the Henderson Fine Arts Center (HFAC) Performance Hall. Ticket prices range from $10 to $25 and are available online or at the door the night of the performance.

In addition, you are invited to a participatory family workshop, Friday, March 1st at 2:00pm. During the workshop, experience exploration, imagination, creativity and the discovery of optical toys, the movie-concert’s original instruments, and learn about the early years of cinema. The workshop is free for SJC students and $15 for general public.
