Experience the Avalon Theatre as it was originally intended... Attend the Annual Catalina Island Museum Silent Film Benefit on Saturday, May 11 at 1:00 pm in the historic Avalon Casino Theatre.
"Make 'em Laugh" is the benefit's theme this year, and it features four comedy 'shorts' by the silent era's greatest comedians: Harold Lloyd, Buster Keaton, Laurel and Hardy and Charlie Chaplin. Each 'short' will feature live accompaniment on the Page pipe organ by Robert D. Salisbury.
According to the event’s producers, each of the four films chosen for this year’s benefit is considered a “masterpiece of the genre.” This year’s films are Never Weaken (1921), starring Harold Lloyd; The Goat (1921), starring Buster Keaton; Big Business (1929), starring Laurel and Hardy; and The Immigrant (1917), starring Charlie Chaplin.
Movie-goers who dress up in 1920s attire will receive a 50 percent discount off the ticket price. Prizes will be awarded to the best-dressed individual and couple.
