Kenneth Turan: ‘The King of Kings’
If you are looking for a cinematic way to celebrate Easter Sunday, why not catch a big-screen presentation of 1927’s silent “The King of Kings”? H.B. Warner plays the title role, but the real star is director Cecil B. DeMille, the king of biblical epics. Picked as the best film about Jesus in a Time magazine poll, “The King of Kings” is notable for its early Technicolor resurrection scene. As the ads said, “Supreme in Theme, Gigantic in Execution.” Live musical accompaniment by the Cabeza de Vaca Arcestra. Screening at 8 p.m. at the Cinefamily, 611 N. Fairfax Ave.
