VCT Presents Silent Movie Mondays: Piccadilly

Escape to the 1920s silent movie era at the historic Orpheum theatre! Vancouver Civic Theatres is thrilled to present Silent Movie Mondays, an immersive experience that screens popular silent films accompanied by dramatic music played live on the historic Wurlitzer organ – the last theatre organ in Canada still performing in its original home.

Join us in the West Coast Lounge for a pre-show performance by the Gatsby Strutters Jazz Band. Following the show, Keith Blackmore of the Vancouver Film School will host a lively discussion about the movie and the role of silent films in the evolution of film history.

Piccadilly (1929)

A young Chinese woman working in the kitchen at a London dance club is given the chance to become the club's main act, which leads to a plot of betrayal, forbidden love, and murder. Anna May Wong is mesmerizing as Shosho, the dishwasher who overnight becomes the toast of the town - and the object of every man's desire.

"What a joyful cinematic experience! A treat for cinephiles and novices alike."
"A fabulous and entertaining experience that doesn’t break the bank."
"I look forward to Silent Movie Mondays more than any other event in Vancouver, by far!"
