    Children of Divorce

    1927 • Clara Bow, Gary Cooper • Accompanied Live by Randy Woltz on the Mighty Wurlitzer • Introduction by Film Historian Randy Haberkamp. Clara Bow was Hollywood's first superstar, rising to fame as Hollywood's "It Girl". This drama develops her persona from spunky and cute, to a complex and daring young woman, unafraid to go after her desires at all costs. Gary Cooper, in his first starring role, ignites the screen and their chemistry is formidable.

    He Who Gets Slapped

    1924 • Lon Chaney, Norma Shearer, John Gilbert. Accompanied Live by Mark Herman on the Mighty Wurlitzer- Introduction by Film Historian Randy Haberkamp.  Lon Chaney, "the man of a thousand faces", plays a man who is shamed at every turn in life. When his mortal enemy reappears, he sets his sights on revenge for the sake of the woman he loves. It's an emotionally charged performance with an electrifying conclusion. Perhaps this rarely screened film is the role for which Chaney should be remembered.

    All seats are only $20 and can be purchased online at Oldtownmusichall.org or at the box office, which opens one half hour before the show. See you soon!

    The Kid

    1921 – silent • Charlie Chaplin • Accompanied live by Brett Valliant on the Mighty Wurlitzer •  It is hard to find such delightful movies as The Kid. It is a silent movie with a wonderful blend of humor and drama so rich and beautiful, it’s beyond words! This was Chaplin's first feature film, and the boy who played "the Kid", Jackie Coogan, was the first child star of the silent era. As an adult, Coogan played Uncle Fester in 1960s TV series The Addams Family.
