Not-So-Silent Cinema

Special Community Performance: A trio of classic silent films with original live music

Saturday, August 20th, 2022 | 5:00pm

St. Helena Performing Arts Center  |  1401 Grayson Avenue, St. Helena

Tickets: $15, $10 for patrons 18 and under.

Three classic silent films, with original music by Stephen Prutsman performed by festival musicians, recreate the cinema experience of 100 years ago, before recorded sound was integrated into filmmaking in the 1920s. The main attraction is a Buster Keaton classic, Sherlock Jr. from 1924. A Trip to the Moon (1902) is considered the earliest science fiction flick, while The Cameraman’s Revenge (1912) is one of the first-ever animated films.
