Silent Movie “The Circus”

Event Details

We will gather for our chapter’s opening program this season to hear Tom Hoehn accompany the 1928 silent film classic “The Circus.” The show will start at 7:30 p.m. in the sanctuary with the church’s IV/96 Wicks/Ruffatti, Rodgers organ. This is open to the public so all are welcome to invite guests.

Chapter members and friends may meet for dinner at 5:30 p.m. at O’Keefe’s Restaurant (1219 S. Ft. Harrison) before heading to the church.

At a circus midway the penniless and hungry Tramp (Chaplin) is mistaken for a condemnable pickpocket and chased by both the police and the real crook. Running away, the Tramp stumbles into the middle of a performance and unknowingly becomes the hit of the show.
