Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra returns to provide live musical accompaniment for back-to-back evenings of silent films featuring the legendary “Queen of the Screen” Marion Davies, one of the great comedic actresses of the silent era.

“SHOW PEOPLE” (1928, NR) Saturday, March 30, 7 pm

Based loosely on the careers of stars like Gloria Swanson, Marion Davies plays naive Peggy Pepper, who arrives in Hollywood expecting stardom to land in her lap. But of course, the road to stardom never runs smoothly. Working her way up from slapstick comedy to pretentious artistic roles (changing her name to “Patricia Pepoire” along the way), her arc takes her behind the scenes in Hollywood’s golden age, with plenty of cameos from other major Hollywood stars and directors.
