DANBURY—Looking for a fun event this Valentine’s Day? The classic silent film, Speedy (Harold Lloyd), will be showing at St. Peter Church at 7:30 pm. Live organ accompaniment will be provided by Boston-based organ virtuoso Peter Krasinski.
Speedy, Harold Lloyd’s last silent film, is a delightful romantic comedy set in New York City. Highlights of the film feature scenes of Coney Island’s Luna Park, and Harold Lloyd speeding through the streets of NYC as they were in 1928. The film also features a cameo by Babe Ruth, and a spectacular car crash at the Brooklyn Bridge (unplanned but left in the film).
Live organ accompaniment to this film will be provided by Boston-based organ virtuoso, Peter Krasinski, on St. Peter’s mighty Peregallo pipe organ. Krasinski is a recipient of a number of prizes including the First Prize in Improvisation from the American Guild of Organists National Competition.
Supported in part by the Danbury Cultural Commission, tickets range from $15 (students and seniors) to $42 (entire families) and are available at Eventbrite or at the door.
