Silent film music program March 15, 2 p.m.

Join Jeff Rapis for a silent film and music event at the Townsend Public Library. Jeff loves presenting and re-introducing great films from the early years of cinema to today’s audiences. With passing of time, the films are no less entertaining (if presented properly), and in some ways are even MORE interesting that when they were first released. Just seeing how people went about day-to-day life a century ago or more has a fascination all its own–something the filmmakers of course never intended.

“Grandma’s Boy” (1921): Comedian Harold Lloyd’s first starring feature finds him playing a mild-mannered young man forced to confront his chronic cowardice, with a little help from his beloved Grandma, who has a few family secrets up her sleeve. A delightful romp from one of the silent film era’s most popular comics. Silent film program at town library is free to the public.

This event was made possible by the Amanda Dwight Entertainment Fund and the TPL Endowment.
