5 Points Theatre is having an encore presentation of Classic Silent Comedy on September 22, 2011 at 7:00 PM. The show will begin with Fatty and Buster’s “The Bell Boy,” (1918). “Norman’s Shorts” will follow, which features clips from some of Richard E. Norman’s silent films. Lastly, “Fatty’s Plucky Pub” will bring the night to a close. Traditionally, silent films were accompanied by live music and sound effects, and this night will be no different. Bob Moore and Tony Steve will perform along with the films. There will also be special guest appearance by Richard E. Norman, portrayed by local actor An-thony Hodge and Fatty Arbuckle, portrayed by Bobb Robinson.
The Cummer is host to Jacksonville’s Norman Studios: Movie Posters from the Permanent Collection until October 30, 2011. The exhibit features movie posters from many of Norman Studio productions, including “The Flying Ace” (1926), which is featured in the event at 5 Points.
Tickets are $10 (Seniors $8), and can be ordered online from the 5 Points Theater.
