The Silent Film Society of Chicago just announced their Silent Summer 2007 Film Festival.
This is one of my favorite things to do on Friday nights in July and August. This year’s schedule looks like this:
July 20 – Seven Chances (Buster Keaton)
July 27 – Wings (Clara Bow and Buddy Rogers, Jr. in the very first film to win an Academy Award for Best Picture)
Aug. 3 – Battleship Potemkin (with orchestra and organ)
Aug. 10 – Welcome Danger (Harold Lloyd)
Aug. 17 – Beggars of Life (Wallace Beery and Louise Brooks)
Details at the Society’s web site.
We’ll be there!
