Escape to the 1920s silent movie era with Silent Movie Mondays, Vancouver Civic Theatres’ new film series hosted at the historic Orpheum theatre, May 1, June 5, and July 10, 2023. The nostalgic experience features screenings of popular silent productions accompanied by live music played on the theatre's original Wurlitzer organ – an instrument developed to accompany silent films and the last in Canada still performing in its original home.

Films that will be screened are Safety Last (May 1), The General (June 5) and Charlie Chaplin Shorts (July 10). The premier show, Safety Last, will be introduced by a special guest – Suzanne Lloyd, granddaughter of the film’s lead actor, Harold Lloyd, who is widely considered among the most influential comedians of the silent film era. Following each show, Vancouver Film School will host a lively discussion of the movie and the role of silent films in the evolution of film history. Tickets for Silent Movie Mondays are available now! Individual tickets start at $15.50.
