PICNIC & SILENT SALON featuring the Villa Aurora Pipe Organ
This summer, Villa Aurora will celebrate its pipe organ, and the sponsors who helped restore it to glory. For the first time, the Villa gardens will be open for patrons to come early and picnic, watch the sunset and then settle into the salon for a program of comedies, by Hollywood's leading comedians, with live organ accompaniment.

Featured Comedian: Max Davidson
Gunter Buchwald on Organ

Max Davidson (1875-1950) is one of the numerous forgotten Hollywood supporting actors who acted in innumerable movies. His heyday was in the late 1920s when he was engaged at the Hal Roach Studios for a series of Jewish comedies which belong to the best and funniest shorts the studio ever produced.


Jewish Prudence, 1927, 21'
The Boy Friend, 1928,  20
Pass the Gravy, 1928, 25

Conductor, pianist, violinist and composer Gunter A. Buchwald is one of the founders of the international renaissance of Silent Film. Unanimously acclaimed as a "world class improviser" he belongs to the elite international group of leading film accompanists.

Grounds open at 6:30 p.m. for picnic
