The 1926 silent film classic The Strong Man, directed by Frank Capra (It’s a Wonderful Life) will be presented with live theatre organ accompaniment by Don Kinnear – who served as the Colonial’s house organist from 1974-1995.
After World War I ends, Belgian soldier Paul Bergot (Harry Langdon) joins with his former German rival, Zandow (Arthur Thalasso), and immigrates to America. While Zandow becomes a vaudevillian strong man, Paul searches for Mary (Priscilla Bonner), his longtime pen pal with whom he is in love. Paul searches for Mary by asking every woman he meets if she is Mary Brown. Will he ever find her? Join us to find out!
