Jeremy Arnold will present “Rear Window”, the dramatic classic film by famed Director, Alfred Hitchcock.
This epic film is centered on a wheelchair-bound photographer, played by James Stewart, who spies on his neighbors from his Greenwich Village courtyard apartment window.

Safety Last

Seats $15.00 at the door (cash only please)

Ben Model helps us mark the centennial of the 1923 silent film, “Safety Last”, a true classic that helped launch the film industry.

Harold Lloyd will forever be associated with “Safety Last” because of a single image. Even people who have never seen a Lloyd film are familiar with the iconography of a bespectacled man hanging off the hands of a collapsing clock on the side of a skyscraper high above teeming city streets. It is one of the most celebrated images in cinema.

The plot of the film has Lloyd as a country boy who sets out from his hometown of Great Bend to make good in the big city. His sweetheart (Mildred Davis, Harold Lloyd’s real-life wife) promises to marry him once his is a success. Yes, but ‘how’ is the question?!

Famous accompanist, Ben Model will perform his own piano compositions to accompany “Safety Last”. Over the past four decaddes, Ben Model has created and performed thousands of live scores for several hundred silent films. Ben is a resident film accompanist at the Museum of Modern Art (NY and at the Library of Congress’ Packard Campus Theatre, and performs at theaters, museums, schools and other venues around the US and internationally.
