The Electric Film Series returns for a highly anticipated 2022 season at the historic Electric Theater on Tuesday, January 18th, at 6 PM (Doors at 5:30 PM) with Silent Film Night–A triple feature of short films from the 1900’s and 1910’s;
“The Impossible Voyage” (1904)
“The Tramp” (1915)
“Coney Island” (1917)
——————————————–
FMASU’s exploration through a century of the film begins with a look at the silent film era. It will include “The Impossible Voyage” from “A Trip to the Moon” director Georges Méliès, the legendary, Charlie Chaplin-headlined “The Tramp,” and “Coney Island” featuring silent film legends Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle and Buster Keaton. These incredible, influential short films will include live piano accompaniment by the gifted Matt Szymanski (Band Director/Music Teacher at Tonaquint Intermediate), and this will only add to the magic of the evening.
This wonderful tribute to the Silent Film Era will include intros and a post-screening discussion by JakCine Entertainment co-founder, Jason Jackson. In addition to being a wonderful screenwriter and cinema event coordinator, Jackson is also quite the film historian making him the perfect special guest for our 2022 Electric Film Series opening event.
Be sure to arrive at the screening a little early and leave a donation. This optional donation will get you a delicious menu item from Riggatti’s to enjoy during the post-screening discussion or, you can feel free to take it home with you following the movie.
And as always, you can expect a few surprises at this must-attend Silent Film Night event so be sure to spread the word by sharing this event page.
This is a free event.
