“If you’re at all interested in cinema, then you’re interested in silent cinema, because that’s where the art form originates. That’s where the language of cinema came into being.” – Martin Scorsese
Silent Movie Day is an annual celebration of silent movies, a vastly misunderstood and neglected cinematic art form. We believe that silent motion pictures are a vital, beautiful, and often powerful part of film history, and we are united with others in the goal to advocate for their presentation and preservation.
Join us Thursday, September 29th for an annual day dedicated to celebrating, preserving and creating access to silent movies with 2 hours of our curated selection of silent short films featuring:
A TRIP TO THE MOON by Georges Méliès
THE GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY by Edwin S. Porter
SHERLOCK JR and THE GOAT by Buster Keaton
