The show will feature comedies by Laurel & Hardy and Buster Keaton, accompanied by Southern California organist Dean Mora at the chapter’s Mighty Wurlitzer theater pipe organ.

The show begins at 7:30pm and will run for about two hours. Admission is $10 for adults, and seniors and students ate $5, with children 12 and under free with accompanying adult. Proceeds from the chapter’s silent movie programs are used to maintain the organ.
