Thanks for all the support!

I just wanted to thank everyone who showed up for the opening night screenings.  I also wanted to apologize to all the people who couldn’t get in. The band did such a great job an had so much fun that we are planning another silent film/live music collaboration. The band was Mike Dubue (Keyboards & noises), Paul Hogan (Guitar), Mike Essoudry (Drum & Percussion) and Linsey Wellman (Flute & Bass Clarinet). Mike and Paul are both members of the HILOTRONS and Empiricals and Linsey and Mike Essoudry are involved in various bands. Please suggest any silent films you have in mind.  Some pictures from the opening can be found here

I know it seems like an obvious suggestion, but I would love to see Chaplin’s “City Lights” in the theatre — I can only imagine how good it would be if given the Mayfair treatment!

Good work guys. Glad to have the old girl back.

We would love to Play “City Lights” or “Modern Times” unfortunately the only distributor that has rights to those films in Canada is Charlie Chaplin’s Estate in France. So getting the films is very very expensive. But will try!

I always wanted to see Pandora’s Box directed G.W. Pabst or Sunrise directed F. W. Murnau. I am sure anything you guys decide will be great. It is really cool you guys are playing silent films.

I knew about Metropolis by reputation but didn’t know a whole lot about the film. I wanted to see it but was one of those who couldn’t get in. I’d love it if you had another showing!

WE are having another showing in Feb. with the same band for all those who missed it…

I second the comment about “Sunrise” by F.W. Murnau. It’s really a fantastic film, and it would probably benefit from the treatment.

You could also include a short film like Joris Ivens’ “Regen” or something. Just my two cents.

I’d love to see The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari or Nosferatu (either one). A Buster Keaton night would be cool too.

I second Nosferatu, doing the Nosferatu-Radiohead mashup would attract a crowd.

I think ‘The Sheik’ (1921) would be a fun one.

Nosferatu is in the works… just looking for a good 35mm print
