Silent Movie Mondays

Going to see a fabulous old silent movie at the Paramount, complete with live Wurlitzer organ accompaniment, sounds like such a cool thing to do doesn’t it? For four consecutive weeks this month the Seattle Theatre Group, with series sponsor Trader Joe’s, hosts Silent Movie Mondays at the Paramount. It’s a great opportunity to see wonderful old films, experience what I’ve heard is a magnificent organ, and lucky you, the first one in the series is free.

The first film of the month is Monday, June 8 at 7:00pm: Flesh and the Devil featuring Lars Hanson, John Gilbert, and Greta Garbo, originally released in 1926. The film looks to be romance- and action-packed, including unrequited love, an exile to Africa, and multiple duels and almost-duels.

The other films in the series:

  • June 15 at 7:00pm: Romola
  • June 22 at 7:00pm: The Godless Girl
  • June 29 at 7:00pm: Seventh Heaven
