Living for a Restful Moment in B&W in Los Angeles, California
When you find yourself in LA, overwhelmed with hyped-up movies full of amped-out special effects, wander over to the Silent Movie Theatre. They have an eclectic lineup but your tonic is their “Silent Wednesdays.” Silent physical comedy and heavy melodrama in black and white are soothing to the eyes. The live organist’s dancing fingers will make your head bob in time. You’ll laugh not to stale fart jokes but to the comedic genius of Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, and others. And you’ll gasp at the stunts because they didn’t use safety harnesses, scale model trains, or computer trickery. What you will see is real, simply refreshing entertainment. You will walk out reconnected to the storytelling magic that films are all about.
