Once again we are thrilled to provide a special presentation of two classic silent era films, in partnership with Cantos Music Foundation. Cantos will be supplying a full live soundtrack to the film using some of their incredible collection of instruments including keyboards, percussion, theramins and other electronic instruments. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see these classic movies the way they were originally viewed...

About the Films:
Rated: GSherlock Jr.
USA / Comedy / Silent with Live Music / 45 min / Ages 8+

A film projectionist longs to be a detective, and puts his meagre skills to work when he is framed by a rival for stealing his girlfriend's father's pocketwatch.

Rated: GCops
USA / Comedy / Silent with Live Music / 20 min / Ages 8+

In Cops, a young man (Buster Keaton) tries to prove to the girl he loves that he's a good business man and ends up inadvertently making one shady deal after the other.

About the Musician:
Chris Maric is a Calgary-based musician who has performed and worked with Cantos Music Foundation and a wide variety of musical groups across the country. Chris’ passion for creating live soundtracks for silent movies is evident in his performances, both musically and visually. His most recent performance for F.W Murnau’s classic thriller, Nosferatu, included an eclectic group of musicians who gracefully mixed styles of music that are usually not associated with one another.

For this performance, Chris will be performing solo with an assortment of instruments courtesy of Cantos Music Foundation, coupled with an exuberant energy for a performance that is not to be missed.

Audience members are invited on stage after the performance for an opportunity to try out some of the instruments.

Join us on Sunday February 26, 2011 at 1:00pm for this special event for the whole family.
