Silent Film with Live Music: SEVEN CHANCES
SEVEN CHANCES (1925) starring Buster Keaton
Come experience the best of early Hollywood the way it was meant to be seen — on the big screen, with live music, and with an audience.
Jeff Rapsis is a New Hampshire-based musician and composer who specializes in creating live music for silent film screenings. Over the past 15 years, he has accompanied more than 1,000 screenings in New England, around the nation, and in Europe.
Keaton never smiled on camera, earning him the nickname of “the Great Stone Face.” But his comedies rocked Hollywood’s silent era with laughter throughout the 1920s, and remain popular crowd-pleasers today. In “Seven Chances” a man learns that he will inherit a fortune if he marries by 7pm that evening.
