A Monthly Series — Silent and Classic Films Scored Live Every First Sunday by Al Church and Friends
Whether he backing on guitar, drums, or keyboards for local stalwarts such as Gaelynn Lea or Actual Wolf, or fronting his own popular 80’s infused solo act — Al Church has become a Swiss Army Knife of the local music scene. And now he’s bringing his talents to The Parkway for the new monthly series, Al Church’s Cinematic Orchestra Presents. Al’s signature sound will be accompanied by special guests, and your favorite visual gems, projected on the big screen. This month Al & friends present the original 1916 classic, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
ABOUT THE FILM
In 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, during the Civil War, reports of a sea monster attacking ships alarm the Navy. An investigation finds the monster is a submarine, the "Nautilus," commanded by vengeance-seeking Capt. Nemo (Allen Holubar), who was once an Indian prince. Years earlier, adventurer Charles Denver (William Welsh) caused the suicide of Nemo's wife and the disappearance of his daughter. Nemo tracks Denver to a distant island where, unknown to him, a wild native girl matching his daughter's description is also hiding.
