Silent Movie Night 2012

Plans are underway for next year's evening of silent films.

Mark your calendars now for:

Friday, February 17, 2012.
Time to be announced. 

After reviewing our survey of what format you would enjoy most, and which films you were most interested in viewing - we plan on offering a short comedy and a feature film, as always with live musical accompaniment.  As always, the evening will feature an intermission, and the programming will be suitable for the entire family.

The total program to run approximately 100 minutes.

We have reviewed several films that reflected your interests, as expressed in the survey, and we are in the process of contacting the owner of those films for permission to run them in 2012.

As soon as we have arranged for permission and licensing, the films titles will be announced.

So please stay tuned!


  1. Eric and Jeff - Thanks so much for offering such great entertainment. We never say thank you enough. This is truly a passion for you gentlemen. Would it be possible to notify the middle and elementary schools as well? This is a lost art and would make a great history lesson. In today's age of techno, they need to realize it all began somewhere.

  2. We would be happy to let people in the local schools know, perhaps we could arrange for a performance at a school - we'd have to look into, I think the high number of children and teens at our last showing, and the sound of laughter from them shows this is still a very viable art form for them as well as adults.
