Live Screening of Peter Pan

If you're in Toronto on October 30th, consider this silent film screening. The venue's unique and the choir is a talented one. I attended last year, and will be there again. Here's the deets:

Enjoy Halloween Eve with Orpheus Cinema - a family event!

Back by popular demand, the Orpheus Choir of Toronto goes to the movies, and kicks off its 46th season with the enchanting 1924 silent film classic Peter Pan, accompanied with split-second timing by a specially chosen choral 'soundtrack' created by artistic director Robert Cooper.

The Paramount Pictures adaptation of the J.M.Barrie classic tale was the first-ever film version of the beloved story of the magical boy who refuses to grow up and his adventures in Neverland with Wendy, Tinkerbell and the villainous Captain Hook. The Orpheus Choir, accompanied by organist extraordinaire Edward Moroney, provides the soundtrack in true silent movie style, with music by Bernstein, Dvorak, Rutter, Vaughan Williams, Weill, Mendelssohn and more.

The many cinematic effects, including mermaids, mystical ships, secret hideaways and the ever-popular flying sequences, even by today's high-tech standards, work amazingly well on-screen. You will not want to miss this year's Orpheus Cinema ... a unique and entertaining choral event!

  1. Wow, that sounds great!!
    Unfortunately I live in Switzerland.

    I maintain a silent movie blog, too and look foreward coming back to browse through your posts and reviews.
    Looks great! I will put you onto my blogroll!

  2. You've reviewed a number of films I haven't seen. Always good to find a compatriot.

    (By the way, isn't that fence-still in The Scarecrow beautifully shot?)
