One of the finest and best maintained Wurlitzer theatre pipe organs on the west coast is installed and playing right here at the San Gabriel Mission Playhouse. Although this magnificent instrument with over a thousand pipes was originally designed for accompanying silent films and entertaining audiences in the 1920’s and 1930’s, it is used today as a key element in exciting concerts and shows that are produced by the Los Angeles Theatre Organ Society.
Well known artist Scott Foppiano will perform on the fabulous Wurlitzer with a wide variety of wonderful music. His show will include a sing-along, and he will also accompany two short silent films (one in each half of the program). The two shorts featured are “Get Out and Get Under” starring Harold Lloyd and “Habeas Corpus” starring Laurel & Hardy.
People under 18 are FREE! For more information and tickets, visit their website or call (888) 528-6722. Visit the website 45 days before the concert for tickets and more details on the short silent films that will be featured.
