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: Charles Chaplin
Dean Mora on Organ.

Charles Chaplin came to Mack Sennett's Keystone Studios late in 1913 as a little-known British vaudevillian, and after a year, had not only established his Tramp character, learned to write and direct his own films, and also achieved public recognition as a star comedian. Although Keystone did not publicize its performers by name, standees of Chaplin's likeness outside theatres sufficed to attract audiences.


Mabel's married life  14:38 w/Mabel Normand and Roscoe Arbuckle, directed by Mack Sennett
The rounders  13:15  Chaplin and Arbuckle
The masquerader  12:21  Behind the Scenes in a Movie Studio

Dean Mora was born and raised in Los Angeles; his interest in pre-WWII America was forged early on as a child.  After he received his Bachelor of Music, at CSU Northridge, Dean was offered the job of accompanying silent films at the Silent Movie Theatre in Hollywood, where he worked for 6 years accompanying over 200 movies.
