Birmingham Jazz, who worked with us on the Sunrise score at Flatpack back in March, are presenting another live film treat at the mac in a couple of weeks. The Oyster Princess is a 1919 romp directed by Ernst Lubitsch, better known for his more sophisticated 30s comedies but here taking the mickey out of high society with lashings of slapstick and inventive camerawork. The music comes courtesy of 14-piece Belgian outfit The Flat Earth Society, and tickets are a snip at £7/£5.
