Second Saturday Silent Cinema
Saturday 11 July 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.

Way Down East (1920)
directed by D. W. Griffith
Deceived by bounder Lowell Sherman, Lillian Gish finds haven with a puritanical Maine farm family and their son Richard Barthelmess; but when her secret comes out, it’s time for one of Griffith’s greatest sequences, the race across the floating ice floes.
