Silent Movie Mondays returns today to The Paramount Theatre
If Mondays get you down, take yourself to The Paramount Theatre for the next three of them to indulge in some nostalgia. And I’m not talking about nostalgia for your childhood (well, not most of you anyway), but for the good old days of silent movies. And not just any silent movies, but classic science fiction/fantasy “handcrafted films that boldly go where no CGI-laden Star Wars, or Harry Potter movie ever can…” Welcome to Silent Movie Mondays.
Tonight at 7 pm you can watch the 1916 classic, ‘20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.’ On Monday, November 9th, catch ‘The Adventures of Prince Achmed,‘ a 1926 German film, and on the last night of the series, November 16th, thrill to ‘The Lost World,’ which has been called “the granddaddy of all prehistoric monster movies.”
“With innovative, illusionary cinematic techniques, trick photography with superimposed images, dissolves and cuts – Silent Movie Mondays: Adventure Stories to Silent Classics explores the early works of visionaries who created a science fiction film world from such malleable objects as cardboard cut outs, clay, and cedars.”
Tickets are $12 and available through STG Presents. You only have three chances at Silent Movie Mondays so don’t delay.
