Silents in the Cathedral
Our feature silent film is the 1927 classic The Cat and the Canary. This "old dark house" mystery focuses on a group of greedy relatives who gather for the reading of a will. At 7pm film historian Denise Morrison will provide historical perspective of the film. Then musicians Marvin Faulwell and Bob Keckeisen will bring the film to life with a rousing musical score. Silents in the Cathedral is a collaboration of the library, Grace Episcopal Cathedral and the Kansas Silent Film Festival Inc. Program funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The following shorts will be shown before the main feature: The Red Spectre, The Ouija Board and The Uneasy Three.
