Happy Birthday, Jack Gilbert!

My favorite mural is looking extra sharp after a recent repainting, so I thought I’d use it to wish a happy birthday to my favorite silent film actor and birthday mate, John Gilbert!

CAPA Summer Movie Series: 25 Classics on the Big Screen

The CAPA Summer Movie Series is one of the (many, many) reasons I am thrilled to be living in my hometown again. It’s the oldest still-running classic film series in the US.

Of this year’s line-up, I’m particularly excited to see the gorgeously photographed silent classic “Sunrise” (1927) blossom on a big screen. Bonus: Clark Wilson will be on hand at the Ohio Theatre to play the Mighty Morton organ.

I’ll definitely dedicate another post or two to the series. Until then…
