I am attending a screening of this film tonight here in my hometown, Lexington, KY. The film will feature live organ accompaniment by silent film composer/accompanist extraordinaire, Ben Model. I couldn’t be more excited.
You'll love it as I did upon seeing it at the Castro Theatre in SF a few years back. Stunning on the big screen. Completely stunning.
Enjoy! Is there a local group in Lexington that sponsors events like this often? My kids and I have been trying to figure out how we can see some silent movies on a big screen with a real audience. I think it would be a totally different experience. (We are in MN in the Twin Cities.)Carrie
Silent films are rarely shown in Lexington, so this was a real treat (I had a great time, by the way). Besides checking your local newspaper, silent film forums and blogs are also another way to find out about upcoming events. I could do a better job of posting film screenings on here as well. Seeing a Chaplin film (or any silent film) on the big screen is an experience I highly recommend for any fan. This is how the films were meant to be seen.
