It is a story of infidelity that director Cecil B. DeMille spun into an eclectic mix of song, dance and disaster. Madam Satan, DeMille’s musical oddity, is coming back to the big screen at the Egyptian Theatre this March, courtesy of American Cinematheque and the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles. The one-day screening will be accompanied by a short lecture on this 1930 pre-Code gem, including its unforgettable zeppelin sequence. Dance critic Debra Levine has researched DeMille’s 40-year friendship with on-screen muse Theodore Kosloff and she will be on hand to provide an inside look at the film’s best moments. Cinephiles, grab a ticket and get ready for a blast from the past.
