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. Terror Island (1920): Harry Houdini stars as an inventor who travels to the South Seas, where there is buried treasure belonging to a girl. The girl's father is being held captive by cannibals until she returns a pearl that belongs to one of their idols. Terror Island was filmed entirely on Santa Catalina Island.
Live Musical Accompaniment by Michael Mortilla and The Accompanists. Award-winning composer and sound designer, Michael Mortilla, and a group of the very best musicians in the nation will provide the live orchestral accompaniment. The group will perform an original score written by Mortilla.
