Skyway Theatre presents a three-performance weekend of silent film on February 10th and 11th featuring a Charlie Chaplin double feature with live orchestral and jazz compositions! The event will begin with local vintage jazz guitar sensation Miss Myra and Fitzgerald Palmer from Miss Myra and the Moonshiners presenting Charlie Chaplin’s slapstick comedic short Behind the Screen. Following is Charlie Chaplin’s six-reel feature The Kid accompanied by composer Philip Shorey and The Curse of the Vampire Orchestra.  Shorey returns after performing for sold-out crowds in Minneapolis for his take on Nosferatu.

Each performance will be followed by a brief interview as we learn more about the unique art form of silent film and the inspiration behind their individual scores. Expect an unforgettable evening full of laughter, romance, and inspiration; a 1920’s three-ring-circus of orchestral music, cinema, and audience-engaged theater. Please be free to dress for the night in your best flapper and dapper 1920s party clothes! Each ticket purchased guarantees a seat to witness this unique romantic spectacle!
