Outdoor Screening: SILENT COMEDY NIGHT

Thursday, June 24, 2021 – doors at 8PM – show at 9PM
Urban Farm Fermentory, 200 Anderson Street, Portland
Tickets via EVENTBRITE

Enjoy an evening of silent comedy films curated by Kinonik, and projected in their original 16mm format with live musical accompaniment by Carolyn Swartz!

The program will feature a selection of classics from Kinonik’s 16mm film archive, projected in analog format:
Safety Last (1923) Harold Lloyd
One AM (1916) Charlie Chaplin
Cops (1922) Buster Keaton

“This is the magic of movies; it’s the difference in nuance between sprocketed frames of real images speeding past the bright bulb of a projector than the digitized experience of pixels on a flat screen,” plugs the Kinonik collaborative. Don’t miss your chance to see the real deal, have some laughs, and enjoy the summer weather!

This event is produced by Kinonik and the Maine Film Association, with support from the Maine Outdoor Film Festival and Urban Farm Fermentory.
