Live-streamed silent comedies event today!

Post by donnie »

Information from Ben Model:

"Right now, mostly all the movie theaters and museums have closed, and a lot of people are being told to work from home. I think I've figured out a way to do a show while working from home.

...At 3pm EDT, I will live-stream a short program of silent comedies and will accompany them live on piano, and this will all take place on YouTube. It's a "pilot" episode, if you will, for something I'm calling The Silent Comedy Watch Party.....I'll be joined by Steve Massa, who will take care of the film introductions."

Here's the YouTube link, if interested. :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPfk0KV9q0Y

How cool!! Among the many events cancelled, TCMFF that was supposed to be held in April, has been cancelled. This is great that he's doing this!

I hope they do more. I wasn't able to watch it.
