Join us as will celebrate National Silent Movie Day on Friday, September 29 at 7:30 pm with a string of classic comedy shorts from our favorite comedy duo, Laurel & Hardy. Yes, the boys are back, and we celebrate their non-talkie film classics for one night only at the Cinema Art Theater. Considered a vastly misunderstood and neglected cinematic art form, the Society celebrates not only the silent film genre but support the preservation of these classic movies!
