MAY 6 - 7

Directed by D. W. Griffith

BROKEN BLOSSOMS

(1919 - silent)
• Accompanied Live on the Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ •

Broken Blossoms is a rarely seen, silent treasure -- one of the most sensitive movies ever made.

 

The First Lady of American cinema, Lillian Gish, stars as a frail waif who is befriended by a Chinese immigrant, with tragic consequences.

 

The film’s themes of racial intolerance resonate even today. It was a big hit with audiences when originally released and today is required viewing for anyone who loves the art of film.

Harold Lloyd in

THE FRESHMAN

(1924-silent)
• Accompanied Live on the Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ •

 

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.

ONE NIGHT ONLY!

IT'S "SCI-FI SUNDAY" at OLD TOWN MUSIC HALL

Gene Kelly • Frank Sinatra

ON THE TOWN

(1949)

 

A true masterpiece that must be seen! 

 

“New York, New York, it's a wonderful town,” especially when sailors Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra and Jules Munshin have a 24-hour shore leave to see the sights - and when those sights include Ann Miller, Betty Garrett and Vera-Ellen.

 

On the Town is a top notch Technicolor musical spectacle.

JUNE 3 - 4

W. C. FIELDS in

THE BANK DICK

(1949)

 

 

W.C. Fields uses his expert timing to make The Bank Dick a classic comedy that gets even better as it goes along.

 

It’s a fun and timeless story.

 

Fields’ politically incorrect jokes seem very present-day, making us realize that audiences of the 1940s weren't as far removed from us as we may think.

 

It's a movie worth seeing again and again and again.

ONE NIGHT ONLY!

KORLA

(2015 - Documentary)

 

Our very own Bill Field appears in this recent documentary about an exotic organist from New Delhi who performed at Old Town Music Hall many times throughout the 70s and 80s.

 

Korla Pandit is best remembered for his daily, live, all-music television program that premiered in 1949.

 

But there was a lot more to the so-called “Indian Liberace” than meets the eye.

 

Korla Pandit kept a major secret that lasted until after his death in 1998.
