Edmund Goulding’s Oscar winner for Best Picture showcases the talents of some of the brightest stars in cinematic history. The lavish Grand Hotel in Berlin is ostensibly a place where “nothing ever happens” but that premise falls apart over the course of one memorable day, as the lives and dramas of different guests begin to intertwine. They include Greta Garbo’s Grusinskaya, whose“I want to be alone” was to go down in history. Cedric Gibbons brings his unmistakable flair to the art-deco production.

Screening as part of our Cedric Gibbons retrospective – February 26th-March 2nd
