Silent Film Sunday at the Brook Arts Center presented by the Garden State Organ Society.
See for yourself why audiences first fell in love with the movies! 'Grandma's Boy,' a 1922 hit comedy that helped establish Harold Lloyd as the biggest box office star of the silent film era, will be shown with live music on the big screen accompanied by Wurlitzer Organist Luke Stasiunis on
Sunday, May 15 at 3 pm. The film was highly influential, helping to pioneer feature-length comedies which combined gags with character development. Grandma’s Bob was an immensely popular, commercially successful film in its time. The grandma's boy is a timid coward who cannot muster the courage to woo his girl and is afraid of his rival. His loving grandma gives him a magic charm, which gives him the courage to capture a town criminal and win the girl. The "magic charm" turns out to be the handle of her umbrella and his grandma was pretending it was magical all along. Tickets $10 online/ $12 at the Door.
