From DNAinfo:

The Silent Film/Live Music series returns to Brookfield Place’s Winter Garden for four nights of gratis performances, from Feb. 17 through Feb. 20.

This year’s series features two nights of silent, avant-garde films created by artist Man Ray in the 1920s. Filmmaker Jim Jarmusch and his instrumental band SQÜRL will accompany the movies with a live original soundtrack.

The festival will also include two nights of the 2013 Spanish movie “Blancanieves,” a silent, adult, black-and-white version of “Snow White.” It will be accompanied by music from the Wordless Music Orchestra, with Neutral Milk Hotel’s Julian Koster.

For more information, head to Arts Brookfield’s website.

Shows each night begin at 8 p.m. Jim Jarmusch will perform on Feb. 17 and Feb. 19, while “Blancanieves” will be screened Feb. 18 and Feb. 20. The Winter Garden is located at 230 Vesey St.
