At each day we will show three of the greatest silent films ever made at the Park Theatre.

Three short films accompanied by the live piano playing of Scott Flyin’ Fingers Wilseck. Twenty minutes before the films start, you can listen to old time piano music in a historic theatre that was built over 100 years ago. Attendees who arrive early get to listen to old time piano music before the films begin as well as Scott’s melodies that provide an excellent background for the action on the screen.  

Scott says, “When I was a kid, they showed silent films in Chicago at the Museum of Science and Industry. While the films were entertaining, I was fascinated by the live piano playing in the theatre. The music was mostly ragtime and really took you back to that era. I’ve always loved playing ragtime and the silent films provide an excellent venue for that type of music.” 

So walk back into time and spend a late afternoon or evening at the movies of the silent era. 

Adult admission is $13. One child is admitted free with each paying adult. Seniors and Students are just $10.50. 

Three classic films of the silent era will be shown on those days. “Out West” starring Fatty Arbuckle and Buster Keaton followed by 
“The Bellboy” again starring Arbuckle and Keaton.  
The final film will be “The Rink” starring Charlie Chaplin. 

The Three movies together will take about a hour and 20 minutes total. 

We look forward to seeing you at the Movies with the talent of flying fingers Scott Wilseck join us 1/2 hour before the films for pre movie music.
