Silent Film Benefit
The Silent Film Benefit provides the rare opportunity to experience cinema the way it was originally intended, with live musical accompaniment by an orchestra in a grand movie palace. This year's silent adventure is the first film adaptation of J.M. Barrie's play entitled, Peter Pan. In the story, Peter Pan was a magical boy who refuses to grow up and brings the Darling children to Neverland. Their adventures include a confrontation with Captain Hook and his crew. It was partially filmed on Catalina Island. Award-winning composer and sound designer, Michael Mortilla and The Accompanists will provide live orchestral accompaniment. The group will perform an original score written by Mortilla specifically for this event. Period dress is encouraged.
