This 1925 silent version of L. Frank Baum’s book is a rare treat. Popular silent film comedian Larry Semon secured the film rights to the book and ended up revising most of the story to favor his broad slapstick comedy antics. Dorothy is played by Semon’s wife. Also featured in this version is Oliver Hardy (Laurel and Hardy), whose appearance alone a good reason to catch this rare piece of film history! The show is accompanied live on the Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ. Doors open and tickets go on sale 30 minutes before show time. Every show begins with music played on the pipe organ, an audience sing-along, and a comedy short. There is a 15-minute intermission, followed by the feature film. Tickets are $ 10 for regular admission and $ 8 for seniors (62+).
When: Friday, September 14, 2018 and Saturday, September 15, 2018 at 8:15 pm on Friday and 2:30 pm and 8:15 pm on Saturday.
