A Night of Comedy at the Movies

Map Unavailable

Date/Time
Sat November 2
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Location
Bethany United Church

The term “silent film” is something of a misnomer, as these films were almost always accompanied by live sounds. During the silent era that existed from the mid-1890s to the late 1920s, a pianist, theater organist—or even, in large cities, a small orchestra—would often play music to accompany the films. Pianists and organists would play either from sheet music, or improvisation. Tickets available at the door or from EventBrite. A classic-comedy with an incredible music score by the wickedly talented Shawn Whynot. This classic film from 1923 features iconic actor Harold Lloyd in one of his funniest roles of all time.  The movie is appropriate for all ages!
