Old Fashioned Silent Movie featuring Chris Maric – Sunday, March 5 @ 3-5pm, Cité des Rocheuses

 

Once again we are thrilled to provide a special presentation of a classic silent era film: Buster Keaton's Sherlock Jr.

Chris Maric will be supplying a full live soundtrack to the film using his wildly imaginative "Machine" – a collection of instruments including keyboards, percussion, horns, a theremin and other instruments and effects. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see these classic movies the way they were originally viewed…

The audience will also be invited to participate in an interactive collaboration with Maric and his Machine. This is sure to be a hit with children who will get a chance to react to, as well as influence a live, improvised score.

After the movie come down and try your hand at playing some of the many instruments available on "The Machine"!
