Midweek Matinee

MetropolisFestival News

If you’re passing through Colorado this month, perhaps unveiling a statue to Denver natives Myrtle and Lincoln Stedman, you should spend some time in Estes Park. In the first and third weekends of August, the beautiful Park Theatre will host films by Chaplin, Keaton, Arbuckle and other heroes of the silent era. Music will be provided by the improvising pianist Jordan McBeen.

The Park Theatre itself is no stranger to silent films. It opened in 1913, and will have shown some of these comic gems the first time around. Its distinctive tower, added in 1926, is a beloved local landmark. So if you’re curious to find out more about the theatre, and the festival, follow the link here: http://www.historicparktheatre.com
