    1928 – silent • Charlie Chaplin • Live Accompaniment by Randy Woltz on the Mighty Wurlitzer • In the last film he made during the silent era, Charlie Chaplin revels in the art of the circus, paying tribute to the acrobats and pantomimists who inspired his virtuoso pratfalls. This gag-packed comedy ranks among Chaplin’s finest, thanks to some of the most outlandish set pieces of the director-performer’s career.

    The Freshman
    1925 • Harold Lloyd • Live Accompaniment by Bill Campbell on the Mighty Wurlitzer • Harold Lloyd is one of the most influential film comedians of the silent era, and The Freshman is one of his best feature-length comedies -- certainly his highest grossing. Lloyd is best known for his bespectacled "glasses" character, here playing a young man who goes off to college. Filmed at the Rose Bowl and around the University of Southern California, the film is widely considered one of Lloyd's most hilarious, well-made films.
    PLEASE NOTE: The Organ Console will be on the right side of the stage for this presentation. It will have the music rack in place, so there will be slight obstruction of the screen for seats B 9-12, C 9-12, and D 9-12. Please be advised when purchasing tickets to this event.

    1925 • Ramon Novarro • Live Accompaniment by Randy Woltz on the Mighty Wurlitzer • Silent film making at its very best. With the proverbial cast of thousands, and years in the making, it was the most expensive silent film ever produced. In the 1920’s, MGM was able to make films that were epic, and this one still feels that way today. Technologically advanced for its day, the film boasts several colored sequences as well as a terrific sea battle, spectacular chariot race, and memorable birth of Christ sequence.

    1928-silent • Renee Jeanne Falconetti • Accompanied Live by Robert York on the Mighty Wurlitzer • This intense and expressive portrait of Joan of Arc is consistently listed as one of the best silent films ever made. Director Carl Theodor Dreyer captures the essence of her struggles through close-ups of her reactions, and the viewer feels intense sympathy as a result. Falconetti is honest and brilliant, and her raw, natural acting style is ahead of its time. A silent film event not to be missed!

    1928 – silent • Buster Keaton • Live Accompaniment by Pete Eveland on the Mighty Wurlitzer • Steamboat Bill, Jr. is regarded as a masterpiece of its time. Buster Keaton was known for his dangerous stunts. Perhaps the most memorable scene is the iconic moment when an entire building collapses on Keaton, but he’s left standing safely in an open door that falls perfectly around his body. Buster Keaton’s work is true genius; a man far ahead of his time. The film will include live accompaniment by Pete Eveland, who was once the resident calliope player on a steamboat!
