Transport your family to a luxe movie palace of yesteryear, featuring famous films and a live orchestra of sound from MBT’s pipe organ.
Peter Pan (1924) conjures a world of mermaids, fairies, pirate ships, and magical forests where childhood is forever and make-believe is real. For many years this delightful tale was one of the most sought-after lost films of the silent era. It underwent a complete restoration in 1995, and organist/historian Dennis James was commissioned to restore the original score.
“[Dennis] James masterfully recreates the musical scores with which these early films were meant to be seen. The Mount Baker Theater, which opened in 1927, is one of the last of the Grand Silent Movie Palaces built in the Pacific Northwest and, as such, is the perfect setting for James’ performances and showing of these films.” -Scot Casey, What’s Up Magazine
