Join legendary Wurlitzer Organist Dennis James for a spellbinding and hilarious evening of Silent Film Masterpieces in the palatial California Theatre. Legendary comedian Buster Keaton’s Our Hospitality follows Fairbanks brilliant The Mark of Zorro 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.

Our Hospitality (silent 1923)

Buster journeys south to collect his inheritance and finds himself in the middle of feuding families. Like Fairbanks, Keaton performed his own stunts. “Sublime silent comedy ... with a genuinely hair-raising finale.” Leonard Maltin.
