Our Mission Statement

Silent Cinema Presentations is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to presenting silent movies with live musical accompaniment to audiences of all ages, in order to preserve the experience of silent cinema.  We produce silent film shows at a variety of venues, and we restore silent films for use at our shows.

We believe in the entertainment value and the cultural and historical importance of silent cinema, and will pass its fun, wonders and traditions on to the audiences of today and tomorrow.
