Seattle Theatre Group says
STG Presents Silent Movie Mondays: Silent Treasures Series at The Paramount Theatre on Mondays in February, 2016!

The four films in this series are treasures—each in its own way. On February 8, Chaplin does it all in the classic The Gold Rush as producer, director, writer and star. February 15 features the restored film of The Big Parade, directed by King Vidor, and recognizes the Centenary of WWI. Finding a treasure is what happened at the Museum of Modern Art when Lime Kiln Club Field Day was discovered in their vaults 100 years after the film was made. On February 22 Bert Williams stars in the first full-length film featuring Black actors. Excluding The Gold Rush, the films in this series will be accompanied by The Paramount’s original Mighty Wurlitzer organ. And closing the series on February 29 is Ben Hur: A Tale of the Christ, with a score composed and performed by Stewart Copeland (original drummer for the band The Police) on drums and percussion. He edited the film to 90 minutes and will be joined by 50 musicians from Seattle Rock Orchestra, conducted by Kim Roy. With the exception of Lime Kiln Club Field Day, all three films were made in 1925 and were the top grossing films of the silent era.

CineClub will follow each film in the Paramount Lobby bar.
