The Son of the Sheik Screening at Niles Essanay Film Museum
I am pleased to announce that I have been invited to introduce the September 10, 2016 screening of The Son of the Sheik at the Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum. Time is TBA as they're just putting the schedule together. You can check for all their screenings at their website linked above.
I am excited to be invited, quite a coup!
Now, since Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum is a non-profit organization, I'm doing my small teeny bit by donating a couple of copies of my 2010 book Rudolph Valentino the Silent Idol which will be raffled off, all proceeds from raffle ticket sales to benefit the Museum. I will recuse myself, but, I'm buying tickets, too! I'm not sure when they will start selling raffle tickets, but, if you go make sure to ask about buying some for your chance to win!
If you've not seen the film, please do mark the date to come and see it. The Museum has all sorts of cool silent film artifacts to be seen and you get to see the film(s) in a real Nickelodeon.
