The Music House Museum is proud to present Charlie Chaplin’s “The Kid” and Buster Keaton’s “The Electric House” accompanied by Andrew Rogers on July 10 and 11 at 6:00PM.
The Kid is a 1921 American silent comedy-drama film written, produced, directed and starring Charlie Chaplin, and features Jackie Coogan as his foundling baby, adopted son and sidekick. This was Chaplin's first full-length film as a director. It was a huge success, and was the second-highest-grossing film in 1921. In 2011, The Kid was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
The Electric House: Keaton plays a botany student who is accidentally awarded an electrical engineering degree. He then attempts to wire a home using many gadgets. The man to whom the degree should have been awarded then exacts revenge by rewiring those gadgets to cause mayhem.
These films will be accompanied by Andrew Rogers on our ‘Mighty’ Wurlitzer theater organ. Rogers, a Detroit native, is an organist at the Michigan Theatre in Ann Arbor. He also scores and performs silent films, and performs concerts throughout the U.S. and Internationally.
