Relive the experience of attending a large city silent movie theatre in the 1920s. Before sound was added to film, large pipe organs would provide the audio backdrop.

World-renowned and Juno award winning organist, Ian Sadler, of Stratford, ON, will accompany both films. Arrive early and hear Ian play Scott Joplin rag tunes on the piano from 7:45 to 8:00 p.m. The Casavant pipe organ of Central United Church, Sarnia is the largest pipe organ in three counties, including the City of Windsor. Come hear this grand instrument in one of its last public performances. The congregation, the oldest in Sarnia, will cease its 188-year old ministry by Fall, 2020. The organ will be shuttered, packed up and leave Sarnia. Come dressed in Roaring Twenties costume and receive a raffle ticket. Raffle winners (5) will receive $20 (the cost of admission!). General Admission.  No reserve seating (except for groups of 10 or more). Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Ticket prices:  Adults: $20;  Youth (12-16):  $12; Children (11 and under): $7.
