Do you enjoy old movies? have you been able to share your love of cool old movies with your kids? We are so fortunate to have the treasure of having the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center right here in town. They bring a breadth and depth of arts to our community. Coming in just a few weeks they’ll be showing J.M. Barrie’s “Peter Pan”. This is a silent film – lost for generations and now beautifully restored. The movie will be accompanied by a live original score performed by Leslie McMichael.
Here’s the Press Release from the Carnegie:
“(Covington, KY) Captain Hook, the Lost Boys, Peter Pan and Wendy first leapt from the storybook to the screen in 1924, with the actors portraying them chosen by creator J.M. Barrie himself. Misplaced for more than 70 years, that cinematic treasure and an accompanying contemporary harp score receive their first screening and performance in the Greater Cincinnati area next month.
Seattle area harpist Leslie McMichael unfurls her original film score with a screening of the 1924 silent film “Peter Pan” at the Otto M. Budig Theatre at The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center (The Carnegie) on Thursday, May 17 at 7:30pm. Magnificently restored after having been lost for generations, “Peter Pan” is a cinematic gem and a spellbinding musical adventure for all boys and girls and those who never grew up.”
