Balboa Theatre Presents Silent Film Classics with Live Organist

Calling all classic movie buffs! On July 21st, the Balboa Theatre will be presenting a unique showing of silent films accompanied by a live organist.

Silent Film collector and aficionado Joe Rinaduo will screen a number of rare and classic silent films made between 1900-1920’s projected on a restored, hand-crank Cameragraph. Accompanying the films will be organist Dean Mora on the Balboa Theatre Foundation’s 1929 Wonder Morton Organ. Films screened will include the rare and fun-filled footage of Trip to the Moon, as featured in Martin Scorsese’s Academy Award winning film Hugo, Hal Roach’s gadget comedy It’s a Gift and Laurel & Hardy’s Big Business.

Reserved seating for all movies is $25

About Suzzanne

I love to buy books, but seldom actually finish one. I like african violets, my iPhone, and everything that smells like lavender.  I am seriously adverse to the cold and am known to bring a sweatshirt to the beach in the summer.  I have two kids – a boy whose 10 and a girl 12.

What would you do on your ideal San Diego Day?

It would start by having breakfast somewhere near the ocean – either Pannikin in Encinitas or Beach Grass Café in Solana Beach.  Then we would head to the beach hang out for a few hours, head home and then catch a concert in the park in Balboa Park.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

We love riding our bikes around town.  There are great places to ride in San Diego that kids can handle – Coronado Island, Point Loma or the boardwalk in Pacific Beach are just a few.

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

Depends on the day, a good burger and craft brew can really hit the spot, but I would probably end up ordering linguine and white wine.
