Arguably, many of the best silent films came in the late 1920’s as Hollywood’s first two decades was coming to an end, and the talking motion picture was about to make its debut. Such is the case with the 1927 classic Sunrise, a movie that is still critically acclaimed by both the American and British Film Institutes as a masterpiece of early film making.
Providing the musical score for the event on the MPAC Wurlitzer will be Minneapolis organist Joe Carlyle. The artist has a long history of performances throughout the Midwest including regular stints on the Rhinestone Barton Organ in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and at the Heights Theater in Minneapolis. He has also been a featured performer on the acclaimed National Public Radio program The Prairie Home Companion, hosted by Garrison Keillor.
The program will be presented Saturday, February 25, at 7:30 PM., at the McKinney Performing Arts Center. Adult tickets for the event are $12 in advance, or $14 at the door. Kids’ tickets are priced at $5 in advance, or $7 at the door. Seniors over 65 are admitted free, but tickets are required. Reservations can be made by calling the McKinney Performing Arts Center box office at (214) 544-4630, or on line at www.mckinneyperformingartscenter.org.
