The Sounds of Silents

Screenings TBD at 10:30 AM, 1:30 PM; 4:30 PM
Did you know that Gari Melchers once had lunch with Charlie Chaplin and loved going to the cinema? Spend an afternoon with us enjoying the motion pictures of the pre-talkies era with live musical accompaniment, popcorn, candy, sodas and food trucks!

Dr. Andrew Simpson, music professor, Catholic University, will curate and accompany on piano two silent film classics and discuss the genre of silent film as a nexus of drama, visual art and music. Screening of the silent movies will be followed with a modern “silent,” The Artist, 2011.
