SILENCE IS GOLDEN AT THE ADMIRAL THEATER
When the Admiral Theater first opened in 1913, it showed only silent films. We pay homage to that era by showing two films by one of the first TRIPLE THREAT woman director, writer and star, Nell Shipman by presenting Something New, 1920 - and the 1921 classic, A Bear, a Boy, and a Dog, which co-star Nell's dog Laddie and her bear, Brownie.
This will also mark Admirals premier performance of the renowned revivalist musician of live silent film accompaniment, Dennis James. James' performance is sponsored through a grant by the Packard Humanities, Institute. Many will recognize Dennis from his years of playing the organ at the Paramount Theater.
Nell Shipman was known for her love of animals. She had a personal zoo with approximately 100 animals, including several wild animals. A pioneer in animal rights, Nell Shipman fought for the defense and good treatment of animals on film sets. It is only fitting that because of her love and advocacy of animals; part of the evening's proceeds will go to the Humane Society. The society is in need of many practical products. We ask that people go to their website and bring those items to the show.
The Movie is sponsored by Women in Film, a non-profit organization of professional women in the film, video, and new media industries who support their members with mentorship, networking and skill-building opportunities.
The organization has honored women in the industry with their Nell Shipman award, named after our evening's "heroine."
There will be a reception at 6:00 and the film will start at 7:00. You will have a BLAST!
