"Safety Last" Accompanied on the Wichita Wurlitzer

Safety Last
Share by Email
Time: 7:30 pm
Date: Tuesday October 2, 2018
Location: Century II Performing Arts & Convention Center
Address: 225 W. Douglas Ave., Wichita, KS, 67202
Price: $10 - $20
Category: Concert / Live Music
Clark Wilson accompanies the silent film “Safety Last” on the Wichita Wurlitzer.

Clark is one of the most prominent and recognized scorers of silent photoplays in America today. He works exclusively with the Organ in developing accurate and historic musical accompaniments as they were performed in major picture palaces during the heyday of the silent film.

“Safety Last” is the story of an industrious fellow who climbed a skyscraper to win his girl. It is the ultimate thrill comedy. Harold Lloyd performed the hair-raising comedic stunt all by himself with only one complete hand. There were no fake backgrounds or computer graphics back in 1923. Strategic camera angles created the dizzy drops. At no time in filming could Harold have fallen more than three stories, but as Harold liked to remind his critics, “Who wants to fall three stories onto a mattress?”

General Admission- $20.00
Seniors (65+) $17.00
Students (5-18) $10.00

Category: Theatre / Dance
In the tradition of Glee and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Band Geeks is a high-energy tribute to high school marching bands and misfits everywhere!

Band Geeks is a celebration of the tribulations of the millions who have spent football halftimes pounding out Sousa-like renditions of “Maria.” Whether you were in the band, on the team or in the stands, you’ll recognize the woes and revel in the fun of Band Geeks.

With just nine members and dwindling funds, the Cuyahoga High Marching Beavers are close to extinction. When a troubled athlete is relegated to their ranks, Elliott, the tuba-playing band captain, and Laura, his best friend, must find a way to unite the band, embrace their inner geek and save the Marching Beavers.

Performances
Friday, Oct 12 at 7:30 pm
