This popular event pairs local musicians with classic silent films, but the players haven’t seen or practiced the movies so the scores are spontaneous. Based on a short story by Hans Christian Anderson, “The Little Match Girl” is a 1928 French drama directed by Jean Renoir about a poor little girl freezing on the streets, trying to sell matches at Christmas time, when she starts hallucinating about her dead grandmother. Things go south from there. 7:30 p.m. Donations appreciated. galleryfive.org.
