Pop Up Kino is a monthly film series celebrating German cinema from the East to the West and from the Weimar period to the Contemporary. Throughout the year a curated selection of films will be screened at MATCH and introduced by a special guest presenter.
Pop Up Kino presents the Weimar classic “The Blue Angel.”
The Blue Angel
Directed by Josef von Sternberg
Professor Rath, a sexually-repressed instructor at a boy's school, learns of his pupils' infatuation with postcards depicting a local nightclub songstress. He decides to personally investigate the Blue Angel nightclub, but after stealing a glimpse of the smoldering Lola-Lola (played by Marlene Dietrich), Rath finds himself consumed by desire and tormented by his rigid propriety.
