Silent Film Series: Way Down East at Flying Monkey
February 4 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Enjoy a silent film in a restored moviehouse with live musical accompaniment by Jeff Rapsis.
Starring Lillian Gish and Richard Barthelmess. Griffith’s enduring box-office smash sees Lillian Gish pitted against small town New England and one very large waterfall. Features Gish as a wronged woman who can’t escape her past. Still-thrilling climax on ice floes heading towards the falls was filmed on the Connecticut River! Engrossing melodrama, and the silent era’s fifth-highest grossing motion picture; an audience favorite for more than a century.
General admission $10.
