Just a reminder that Silent & Classic Movie Nights continues this Saturday with the 1915 film version of Alice In Wonderland. Bring the whole family and watch the film under the stars. Gates open at 7:30.
“The 1915 film version of Alice In Wonderland will be screened on Saturday, July 27. This is the third film adaption of the Lewis Carroll classic novel. For admirers of the book, this film version is significant for portraying the ‘Father William’ poem in its entirety and it includes an image of John Tenniel’s illustration of Father William doing his back-somersault at the front door. Tenniel was the artist who illustrated Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass.”
