TOSDV Silent Film Festival: The King of Kings

Sign-up to receive updates about this and other events and films.

The drama portion will have Cecil B. DeMille’s epic “King of Kings”, accompanied by Glenn Hough. Glenn Hough is a highly experienced musician and organist, having spent decades as organist of the historic Marietta Theatre in Central PA.


The Organist, Glenn Hough has been entertaining for fifty years including as house organist/silent film accompanist at the Marietta (Lancaster County) Theatre, church organist at various Lancaster County churches, walk-in music organist at the Capitol Theatre in York, and as a freelancer under the name “Glenn’s One Man Band.”  He has played the TOSDV Wurlitzer for at least one silent film and the 2021 Holiday program with Phyllis Sands and Maria Damore. He has a twenty-rank organ in his home.  He regularly assists with the Dickinson (DTOS) Kimball providing mini concerts and other incidental organ music.   Last spring he accompanied “King of Kings” on an Allen theatre organ home installation. His emotional interpretation of the film convinced me to have him play for the silent film festival.

This program benefits the Theatre Organ Society of the Delaware Valley (TOSDV) Theatre Organ Restoration Fund. For additional information visit; email

After driving the sin out of Mary Magdalene (Jacqueline Logan) and raising Lazarus (Kenneth Thomson) from the dead, Jesus (H.B. Warner) enters into Jerusalem, where Judas (Joseph Schildkraut) conspires to have him turned over to the authorities. After the Last Supper, Jesus goes to Gethsemane, where he is taken prisoner, and thereafter tried under Pontius Pilate (Victor Varconi) and crucified. He is buried and, as foretold in scripture, resurrected three days later.
