Silent Movie Night


Ah . . . remember the good old days, when movies were silent and a live organist performed the music? Me, neither. (Hey, I’m old—but not that old!) At “Silent Movie Night,” you can dip nostalgically into the days of yore, pre-cell phone and pre-digital everything, and bask in the beauty of the vintage craft of filmmaking, circa the 1920s. This very cool event happens Friday, Jan. 30 at 7 p.m. at the Fair Oaks Community Clubhouse in the quaint village of Fair Oaks. With organist Dave Moreno in da house—along with a little popcorn and beverages to wash it down, of course—the four films on tap are:

• “Crazy House” (1928), Our Gang
• “Two Wagons: Both Covered” (1924), Will Rogers
• “Double Whoopee” (1929), Laurel & Hardy
• “The Playhouse” (1921), Buster Keaton

Silent Movie Night is presented by the Fair Oaks Recreation and Park District and the Sierra Chapter of the American Theatre Organ Society.
