"The Cameraman" in Canton, OH

My friend Alison sent me a notice that the Canton Palace Theatre (located in beautiful downtown Canton, Ohio) will be showing The Cameraman this Sunday.

Here's the text of the email she forwarded me (with extensive grammatical edits by me):

On Sunday, November 23rd, in celebration of the theatre's 82nd birthday, the Canton Palace Theatre will be showing the classic silent film "The Cameraman" starring Buster Keaton. Accompanying on the Kilgen Theatre Pipe Organ will be nationally known theatre organist Clark Wilson.

This film is considered a masterpiece in comedy film making, used in film schools to demonstrate filmmaking techniques in comedy. See it as it was supposed to be seen, in a 1926 silent film theatre, with the theatre pipe organ.

Champagne reception at 430pm with the film at 545pm, $15
Silent film alone, at 5pm, $10
The Canton Palace Theatre 605 Market Ave North
330-454-8172 for information

I'm hoping to be able to make it, but I'm not sure. But if any other silent film fans plan to go, let me know and I'll definitely meet you there!

Rare and vintage hollywood memorbilla, furniture, books, as well as other items from the estate of Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks, Pickfair, their legendary Beverly Hills mansion, will be auctioned off Nov.22-23. The cool thing is you can bid online at You don't actually have to be at the auction. Thought i'd pass along to fellow silent film lovers!
