Boise Philharmonic: Silent Movies with Ben Model 

Saturday, Feb. 13

The Egyptian Theatre is going back to its roots as a 1920s-era movie house with a special screening Saturday, Feb. 13 featuring early silent films dating from the teens and '20s.

The Boise Philharmonic and special-guest organist Ben Model will perform original pieces to accompany classics such as The Immigrant, featuring Charlie Chaplin (1917); Ask Father (1919); Dog Shy (1926); and Fatty and Mabel Adrift, which stars Fatty Arbuckle and celebrates its 100th birthday this year. Completing the period authenticity, Model will even play on the Egyptian's original organ while Youth Orchestra Director Deanna Tham will conduct the ensemble.

Pop on your pan brim tourist or top-notch toque and settle in for a century-old cinema experience.
