Silent Movie with Organist Clark Wilson

Buy Pass & Parking

Organist Clark Wilson returns to Hoover Auditorium on Thursday, Aug. 25 to play along with the screening of silent movie “Our Hospitality” starring Buster Keaton. This Silent Movie Night is supported by Peter & Debbie Stephens. 

Wilson is one of the most prominent and recognized scorers of silent photoplay in America. He works exclusively with the organ in developing accurate and historic musical accompaniments as they were performed in major picture palaces during the heyday of the silent film.

 “Our Hospitality” Plot Summary: A man returns to his Appalachian homestead. On the trip, he falls for a young woman. The only problem is her family has vowed to kill every member of his family.

After her husband John McKay is killed in an ongoing feud with the Canfield family, a woman takes her baby boy Willie to her sister’s house in New York hoping he will never know of the feud with the Canfields. Twenty years later, Willie is a grown man and he receives a letter saying he has inherited his father’s estate and must travel to his family home to take possession. On the train there he meets a beautiful young woman and falls in love only to learn that she’s a Canfield. He accepts her invitation to dinner and quickly realizes that the Canfield men won’t kill him while he’s in their home. His plan to stay there as a permanent guest is short-lived and the Canfields are soon after him.

The event is finished.
