SILENT FILM MUSIC FESTIVAL
Time & Location
About the Event
When silent films debuted nearly 100 years ago theaters would hire musicians to play alongside them. Bountiful Davis Art Center will recreate this experience all day Saturday, September 08, 2018 from 9:00 am – 8:00 pm. Live pianists on two Steinway grand pianos will accompany a new movie every 45 minutes throughout the day. Over 350 young pianists from 18 piano teachers will perform the score music. Watch seven different movies featuring Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin.
Creator and Coordinator Heather K. Smith says this festival is perfect for families. “The films are all age-appropriate, funny, and relatively short. Not only will this festival offer a performance opportunity for students but will also be a way to historically preserve silent films.”
Traditional cinema food and drink will be sold.
