La Passion de Jeanne d'Arc (1928) premiered in the Palads Bio on April 21, 1928. The owner at that time was also a well-known critic, and while recognizing Passion as a great film, claimed it could not appeal to the larger public. A social-democratic politician publicly challenged the Palads Bio owner, and in response, the cinema opened its doors to a free matinee for the city’s workers — 1800 watched the Passion. They were given response cards, on which they gave an overwhelmingly positive reaction. This is detailed in the excellent commentary on the Criterion DVD of Passion.

It’s a shame t
