One Sunday, two states, three films
Just a brief 'placeholder' note here about Sunday, June 5. Did music for a Rin Tin Tin double feature matinee at the wonderful Leavitt Theatre in Ogunquit, Maine, and hauled ass down to the equally wonderful Somerville Theatre in Davis Square in Somerville, Mass. (right outside Boston) to do music for an all-35mm Keaton program that included 'Our Hospitality' (1923). Phew! Way to kill a Sunday. But nice turnout for both programs, especially considering it was one of those beautiful late spring weekends, of which we seem to get so few here in New England. More later, but just now wanted to post a note to say thank you to the management and the audiences of both venues for giving an opportunity for silent film to return to the big screen!
