Join legendary Wurlitzer Organist Dennis James for a spellbinding and hilarious evening of Silent Film Masterpieces in the palatial California Theatre. Fairbanks brilliant The Mark of Zorro precedes legendary comedian Buster Keaton’s Our Hospitality in a magnificent double feature. Double feature tickets provide access to both movies, and we are providing individual screening tickets to each film and performance as well. An intermission will follow The Mark of Zorro.

The Mark of Zorro (1920 silent)

Douglas Fairbanks, the original swashbuckler, plays Zorro, the masked hero who protects the poor citizens of Old California against their rapacious governor. Fairbanks is equally impressive as the dashing, athletic Zorro (performing his own stunts) and his alter ego, the foppish Don Diego.
