Event Description

Enjoy silent films in a restored moviehouse with live musical accompaniment by Jeff Rapsis.

 

Rediscover forgotten silent comedian Monty Banks, born “Mario Bianchi” in Italy and who emigrated to America to become a popular 1920s Hollywood star. In featured attraction ‘Flying Luck,’ (1927), hapless aviator Monty is so inspired by Lindbergh’s solo Atlantic flight that he joins the U.S. Army Air Corps, where it’s one comical disaster after another. Preceded by an excerpt from ‘Play Safe’ (1927), a hair-raising chase sequence set aboard an out-of-control freight train barreling through the California countryside.
