Friends of the Kotzschmar Organ

Halloween Silent Film with James Kennerley
Tuesday, October 29 at 7:00 pm
Merrill Auditorium, Portland

Maine Public is a media sponsor of a Halloween Silent Film with James Kennerley, presented by Friends of the Kotzschmar Organ at Portland's Merrill Auditorium, on Tuesday, October 29.

The evening starts with an adult costume parade with the winners chosen by special judges. This is followed by the main event, the showing of "Battleship Potemkin." Considered one of the best films of all time, this terrifying 1925 silent classic presents a dramatized version of the 1905 mutiny that occurred when the crew of the Russian battleship Potemkin rebelled against its officers. Municipal Organist James Kennerley's accompaniment brings the drama (and the terror) to life! The perfect Halloween fright!
