Second Saturday Silent Cinema

Saturday 10 – Sunday 11 January 2015

A tribute to silent film that only the Music Box can offer! Named by Chicago Magazine as the Best New Film Series of 2011. Now presented on the second Saturday of every month at noon!

As part of the Music Box’s commitment to screening classic films, we are delighted to announce what we hope to be an annual series of silent films. Thanks to a number of improvements during the past year, we believe there’s no better place in Chicago to see silent film! We want to share that experience with you throughout 2013 with a special monthly silent film series. Our excellent house organist Dennis Scott will be accompanying all films.

Synthetic Sin (1929)

directed by William A. Seiter starring Colleen Moore, Antonio Moreno

Oh, so famed playwright Antonio Moreno’s latest work flopped because fiancee Colleen Moore was too “unsophisticated” to play the lead? Guess it’s time for the flower of Magnolia Gap, Virginia, to get to Gotham for some experience-Good luck! Her next door neighbors are gangsters! Recently rediscovered in Italy and restored as part of The Vitaphone Project by Warner Bros, this is the first Chicago screening in over 80 years!
