“LOOK! UP IN THE SKY! IT’S A BIRD! IT’S A PLANE! IT’S SUPERMAN! Well, it could be. But it’s not that caped and masked crusader who arrives at the Colonial on Sunday Sep 22. THIS TIME ITS ZORRO!! Travel back in time with the Theatre Organ Society of the Delaware Valley to the early southwest when tyranny, fear, cruelty and oppression ruled the settlers and the native Indians. See what happens when our fearless caped and masked avenger appears in order to right the wrong! See Douglas Fairbanks Sr. as he runs, leaps, rides and duels in the fabulous 1920 swashbuckling epic The Mark of Zorro.
You’ll also see Noah Beery Sr., brother of the well-known actor Wallace Beery, as the pompous Sergeant Gonzales as he struts around and boasts about how he’ll take care of Zorro! Hmmm you think?! With such a hero as Zorro on the scene there MUST of course be a member of the fair sex. Does our hero eventually get the girl? Hmmm…you think?! Added to the excitement on the screen, you will hear the fabulous live musical accompaniment by the very talented Chris Elliott, who comes to us from California for this special event. Chris will be playing TOSDV’s 3/24 Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ, an instrument from the same era as the movie.
This program benefits the Theatre Organ Society of the Delaware Valley (TOSDV) Theatre Pipe Organ Restoration Fund.
