Maryland Hall Movie Night: “The Gaucho”
September 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Silent Film and Live Music by Andrew Simpson | Hispanic Heritage Month Event
There is no experience quite like watching a film accompanied by live music. A story unfolding on screen is amplified by music which responds to its plot turns, making emotions bigger and characters more vivid. Acclaimed silent film musician Andrew Earle Simpson comes to Maryland Hall to partner two silent films with new music created in real time.
On Sunday, Sept 25, swashbuckling silent screen star Douglas Fairbanks stars in THE GAUCHO (1927). Mexican-born actress Lupe Velez stars as the Mountain Girl who sees a miraculous vision which impacts the world around her as well as the dashing bandit who crosses her path.
Full of adventure, action, and romance, THE GAUCHO shows what happens when a bandit meets a saint, and a would-be dictator comes to town.
