Silent Movie Night

City Lights

Starring Charlie Chaplin

and featuring Lynne Long on the piano

A homeless tramp befriends a lovely blind flower seller and convinces her that he is a millionaire while he secretly labors to pay for the restoration of her sight. One of Charlie Chaplin's masterpieces, this hilarious and heart-rending film was made and released in 1931. 

City Lights was immediately successful upon release on January 30, 1931 with positive reviews and box office receipts of $5 million. Today, many critics consider it not only the highest accomplishment of Chaplin's career, but one of the greatest films of all time. In 1991, the Library of Congress selected City Lights for preservation in the United States National Film Registry as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." In 2007, the American Film Institute ranked it 11th on its list of the best American films ever made. In 1949, the critic James Agee called the film's final scene "the greatest single piece of acting ever committed to celluloid."

 Even though the elevator is finished, we still need $12000.00 to complete our payoff.  Can you help?  Would you please consider giving to this incredible cause.  The elevator has allowed more individuals up into the opera house this year than ever before. Friends that have never seen a show at the opera house were able to do so this year.  Grandparents were able to see their grandchildren perform in plays and recitals this year because of your generosity.  Thank you to all that have donated, and please, if you can, give again!  Thank you!

 

 

Every little bit helps us reach the finish line!! Please give today!
