September 29th is the first NATIONAL SILENT MOVIE DAY! The Bijou Theatre of Lincoln City is jumping in and celebrating by presenting the 1923 classic THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME staring Lon Chaney.
Wednesday morning, September 29th at 11:00am, Mack Pimentel, of Pacific City, will be providing the musical (and other) soundtrack on the Bijou’s Might Allen Organ. Mack has played-in the crowds at the Bijou’s Monday and occasional Friday 2:00 shows for the last 15 years. $2 minimum donation goes to the regeneration and enhancement of the Allen Organ.
This is reminiscent of when the Bijou did the WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON THEATRE ORGAN CLUB in the late 1990’s which was a monthly silent movie with organ accompaniment and a periodic guest player.
