Silent Sundays gets a sprinkle of fairy dust with an adaptation of one of the most beloved children’s stories of all time! Join us on May 26th as Peter Pan whisks the Darling children off to Never-Never Land – where along with the Lost Boys they learn to fly, swim with mermaids, rescue Princess Tiger Lily, and torment the nefarious Captain Hook.
Lost for decades, and consequently rarely seen, the 1924 version of Peter Pan is one of the most visually spectacular films of the era and a wonderful introduction to silent film for a younger audience.
Featuring live piano accompaniment by William O'Meara.
Silent Sundays is curated by media archivist Alicia Fletcher and journalist Eric Veillette.
