The Silent Cinema Showcase returns with another selection of newly restored screen classics and rare gems from the silent era. Silent filmmaking was an art form unto itself, one that sound films may have replaced but did not necessarily surpass. This year, get acquainted with great silent film screen talents like Buster Keaton, Marion Davies, Harold Lloyd and Pola Negri, plus the dedicated and talented musicians who bring these films to life with their inventive accompaniment, including Donald Sosin, Ben Model, Gabriel Thibaudeau, Makia Matsumura, Michael Britt and Silver Spring's own Andrew Simpson. And look for very special events featuring larger-scale combos the Silent Orchestra, the Columbia Orchestra and the Peacherine Ragtime Society Orchestra.
