The Weinberg Center for the Arts will be bringing back another vintage film series for silent film lovers during the venue’s 2016-17 performing arts season.
Back to the Tivoli: The Weinberg Center’s “Silent Film Series”
For fans of silent film in the Frederick area and beyond, the historic cinema house (formerly known as the Tivoli Theater) will be showcasing a series of vintage Hollywood silent films from the 1920s.
All silent films in the series will be accompanied by organist Michael Britt, who will play on the theater’s “mighty” 1926 Wurlitzer organ.
From horror to slapstick comedy and drama, there’s something for everyone during the Weinberg Center’s silent film showcase!
